Overview

 

"Life in the camps was not easy. It was inadequate and morale-killing. But never in those months did we lose faith in America."
An internee

Set in train by the rumors and fears that followed the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941, the war relocation effort was a complex and often confusing process for those affected.  

The Records of the War Relocation Authority illustrate both the complexity of the WRA organizational structure and the efforts of the authorities to portray the relocation centres as normal communities.

They also include camp publications and other documents reflecting the conflicting emotional state of the internees and their struggles to preserve a sense of normal existence.
