    • Japanese Americans and World War II
      During World War II, America fought against Japan. At that time, the U.S. government grew paranoid about Japanese Americans.
    • Japanese-Americans were forced to shut down their businesses…and eventually…
    • They were sent to internment camps like this one. 120,000 Japanese Americans ended up in these camps.
    • Camp Harmony
      Puyallup, WA
    • The camps finally were all closed by 1945. Now, the U.S. government is very sad about what had happened, but many people will never forget those days.
