Titled as: Evacuee resistance to relocation. Presents three "fundamental reasons" for the "relocation program" designed to encourage people to move out of the incarceration centers, then describes the "ideal relocation program," which would see "every one relocated before June 30, 1944." Provides statistics on numbers of people who left centers on indefinite leave in April and May, 1943; discusses leave procedure; probes causes of resistance to relocation, including feelings of insecurity and fear; discusses Issei and Nisei; and concludes with a discussion of "administrative attitudes." The War Relocation Authority (WRA) was created on March 18, 1942, by Executive Order of the President, No. 9102. This new civilian agency was to be responsible for "the relocation (of evacuees) in appropriate places, providing for their needs in such manner as may be appropriate, and supervising their activities." The collection consists of reports, memoranda, news clippings, news digests, statistics, and other documents issued by the War Relocation Authority leading up to, during, and following the period of Japanese American incarceration.
