In this lot are two framed posters displaying notifications of internment of Japanese-Americans during World War Two.

One of the darkest periods in American history concerned the forced relocation and incarceration in internment camps of between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry living in the United States. Sixty-two percent of the internees were United States citizens. These actions were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. By August 18, 1942, all Japanese Americans had been forcibly removed from the West Coast of the U.S. The posters in this lot are Civilian Exclusion Order posters, which announced the evacuation of all persons of Japanese ancestry. They contain chilling instructions for these Americans regarding what they were and were not allowed to take with them and when and where to report.
