In 1942 more than 109,000 Japanese Americans, including 70,000 U.S. citizens, were picked up and sent to incarceration centers, most for the duration of the war. It was the shame of America-- and it was documented on film. Cahan and Williams provide a visual history which includes interviews with many of the people reflecting on their experiences.

I am always annoyed when they write about this, entirely ignoring the financial/economic aspects. Who were the two individuals behind this? John J. McCloy and Earl Warren [and who were the major force, along with fired CIA director, Allen Dulles, on the {Earl} Warren Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy? John J. McCloy, of course].
The Great Japanese-American Land Grab is a more accurate name for what occurred - - prime real estate, prime wine- and food-growing land taken wholesale!
[John J. McCloy, later chair of the Chase Bank, was a real sweetheart who managed to have some serious monsters pardoned at the Nuremburg Trials after World War II, including one lady doctor/scientist he had known form his time with I.G. Farben, who performed live human dissections at Auschwitz.]
