Japanese Internment Camps

Busse Library provides the following list of online resources and of items from its collection about America's Japanese internment camps during World War II. In the early months of the war, almost 120,000 Japanese Americans were forced out of their homes and into detention camps created by the U.S. federal government. Some of the victims would remain in the camps for the next three years in one of the worst civil rights violations in American history.
