Japanese-American Child Sent to an Internment Camp

Following FDR's Executive Order 9066, Japanese-Americans were rounded-up from their homes and forced to relocate to internment camps for the duration of WWII.

After President Roosevelt signed his Executive Order 9066, in February of 1942, Japanese-Americans were forced to leave their homes for resettlement in internment camps. This photo, which Clem Albers took in California during April of 1942, depicts one little girl disrupted by the mandate.

The National Archives, which maintains the photo, provides a description:  

A young evacuee of Japanese ancestry waits with the family baggage before leaving by bus for an assembly center in the spring of 1942.
