Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II

Described as one of the darkest times in U.S. history, the government incacerated 120,000 citizens and legal residents during World War II. The prisoners only “crime” was their Japanese ancestry. In an exhibit at The International Center of Photography, the works of renowned photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange and incarcerated photographer Toto Miyatake document the eviction of Japanese Americans and permanent residents from their homes and their subsequent incarceration in internment camps.
