Day of Remembrance: Executive Order 9066: Read

In February 1942, President Roosevelt signed E.O. 9066, mandating 120,000 Japanese-Americans to be imprisoned in camps during WWII. Decades later, in 1988, the order was deemed unconstitutional and belatedly, but dramatically, reversed.

Catalog Search Tips

To find more resources about the Day of Remembrance and Japanese-American internment, use Japanese Americans--Evacuation and relocation, 1942-1945. as a subject search in the library catalog. Searching for terms such as "internment" or "concentration camps" won't return as many or as focused results.
