Germans By: William Garcia and Sam Hughes The Treatment of Aliens in the United States during WW2 - Germans were sent to internment camps
(around 11,000 Germans).
- While in internment camps, Germans worked in factories to replace the U.S. men fighting over seas.
- There was a large population of Germans in
the United States, and the government could not detain all of them. To fix this problem, the military kept all German citizens away from the coastal areas.
- Germans were despised by Americans
and were treated like aliens. Italians Jews - During the Holocaust, many Jews tried to escape to
the United States using large ships.
- They were all turned back due to tight immigration
policies currently enacted in the U.S.
- The U.S. was not fully aware of the horrendous effects of the Holocaust
- Many Jews that were already in the U.S. joined the
military to help fight Germany
- 500,000 Jews served in all branches of our military
- Any Jews that were in the United States before the war were not treated any differently during the war.
They were treated as regular citizens. Japanese US restricted and neutralized Italians that were not citizens because of the war
Italians were treated roughly. Their homes were raided, some were arrested, and others were put in internment camps
They were also required to carry cards identifying them as "enemy aliens"
