FC: Our Journey In The Japanese Internment Camps | By: Megan And Shraddah

1: This notice was distributed throughout British Columbia. If any Japanese were found in the prohibited areas listed, they would be incarcerated.

2: Loading up all the Japanese people to bring to internment camps because we were thought of as a threat when we at war with Japan...

3: Getting sent away to British Columbia ...

4: All packed .. | We were only allowed 70 pounds worth of valuables/ clothing...

5: Waiting to hear what was happening and waiting for hours for the trains, buses, or cars..

6: Everyone still waiting to hear what was happening ...

7: Finally loading everyone on automobiles..

8: Being prejudges... | Being racist and not trusting those around them..

9: The work... | Our new homes..

10: There were ten internment Camps in total; they consisted of: three road camps, two prisoner of war camps(POW), and five self supporting camps. These were scattered throughout Canada during the second World War. Prior to World War II, 22,096 Japanese Canadians lived in British Colombia. Three quarters of them were naturalized or native born Canadians.

11: Mackenzie King's first order of business was to incarcerate all Japanese males between the ages 14 and 45 | We were thought of as a threat..

12: We,Japanese Canadians, were being punished for a crime we didn't commit. Canada's only defence for it's actions was that we,Japanese people, were not white and we "could" be Japanese spies. | We, Innocent Japanese Canadians were stripped of our rights, issued special clothing, humiliated, thrown behind barb wire fences, and were forced to do manual labour.
