Aftermath

The "evacuation" of Japanese Americans from their homes on the West Coast reduced once-thriving communities to ghost towns. Having only a week to prepare for the removal, many Japanese Americans were forced to board up and abandon businesses and homes. Rampant anti-Japanese sentiment in newspapers, theater newsreels, and radio broadcasts fueled acts of vandalism against the vacated neighborhoods.

Japanese Americans were given little time to take care of their personal and business affairs once the exclusion orders were posted. Many businesses were either permanently closed or boarded-up for the duration of World War II. Shown here is 602 to 612 Jackson Street in Seattle's Nihonmachi, or Japantown.
