En la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Estados Unidos luchó contra Japón. En 1942, el presidente de los Estados Unidos firmó una orden ejecutiva que obligaba a más de cien mil estadounidenses de origen japonés a abandonar sus hogares. Estas personas inocentes, muchos de ellos ciudadanos estadounidenses, pasarían los siguientes años encarcelados detrás de cercas de alambre de púas, en lo que el gobierno llamó campos de internamiento.

La vida en los campos era difícil. Las personas extrañaban sus hogares. Las barracas donde dormían estaban frías y sucias. La mayor parte del país creía que eran criminales. No obstante, los estadounidenses de origen japonés encarcelados mantuvieron su coraje intacto. Aprende sobre estos valientes héroes, incluidos aquellos que lucharon por la justicia y la libertad.

During World War II, the United States was battling Japan. In 1942 the president of the United States signed an executive order, forcing more than one hundred thousand Japanese Americans to leave their homes. These innocent people—many of them US citizens—would spend the next few years imprisoned behind barbed wire fences, in what the government called internment camps.

Life in the camps was difficult. People were homesick. The barracks where they slept were cold and dirty. Most of the country believed they were criminals. But imprisoned Japanese Americans remained brave. Learn more about these courageous heroes, including those who fought for justice and freedom.
