1943 JAPANESE INTERNMENT MALHEUR OREGON
1943 JAPANESE INTERNMENT MALHEUR OREGON
This Photograph shows newly arriving Japanese Americans at the Japanese internment camp located in rural Malheur County, Oregon. 1943.

The Malheur Interment camp, located in one of the most remote locations in the United States, is now a wildlife refuge. "Internment began on December 7, 1941 after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. By 7:30 am December 9, 1941, the U.S. government had already interned 1,291 Japanese, 857 Germans, and 147 Italians. While the U.S. was at war with Japan since December 7th and could lawfully intern Japanese nationals as enemy aliens, the U.S. was not at war with Germany or Italy until December 11th. During those four days, December 7th through December 10th, German and Italian nationals were not enemy aliens and their internment was illegal. The total number of people interned during World War II was 31,275."
