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.
