Comments

The United States was attacked on December 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor by the Japanese government, ushering in American involvement World War II. This caused the general American pubic to panic and fear Japanese Americans so much that they allowed the imprisonment other Americans based on their ethnic background. This picture shows a group of ten young Japanese-American girls dresses in patriotic dresses and holding American flags. At the time this picture was taken, these young people were being imprisoned by their own country in the Jerome Relocation Center. This picture was mostly likely taken by the war department as propaganda. - Crystal Shurley
