Description
This is an article in the magazine "Common Ground" volume 3, no. 4 (summer 1943), which discusses about the important job of resettling the incarcerated Japanese Americans outside the war relocation centers. It describes in detail about how the government has done wrong in detaining and relocating about 100,000 Japanese American people,most of which are American citizens, after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
2 pages, typescript, 8.93 x 11.45 in.
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.
