On December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese. Widespread anger and chaos ensued. The U.S. government immediately declared war upon Japan marking the entrance of the U.S. into World War II. This also marked the beginning of the incarceration of Japanese-Americans. A truly unjustified action, the internment of the Japanese is one example of how unsolved discrimination can bring injustice to U.S. citizens. This website honors the Japanese-Americans who went through the experience and lived to tell. History is meant to be passed on and used to keep from making the same mistakes.
