Many others refused to demonize Japanese-Americans and Americans of Japanese descent. One in particular deserves mention. General Delos Emmons, the military governor of Hawaii opposed efforts to intern Japanese Americans. In a radio address shortly after the Japanese attack, Emmons assured these residents: "There is no intention or desire on the part of the federal authorities to operate mass concentration camps. No person, be he citizen or alien, need worry, provided he is not connected with subversive elements." As a result, the part of America with the greatest concentration of these people of Japanese ancestry did not participate in the internment program while on the West Coast of the US forcible removal was prompt and thorough. In March and April of 1942 more than 100,000 Americans were transported to inland camps. Lange's photos documented the evacuation thoroughly. Because they dispassionately revealed an unpleasant side of life in the US, the Army impounded the whole collection for the duration of the war. As one source comments, she showed the diffiulty Americans of Japanese ancestry faced in having to leave their homes and create new lives in the camps. "Her images often juxtapose the human side and the courage of the people who were being moved, with their harsh living conditions and the inhumanity of living within barbed wire."
This photo is only indirectly about relocation to the camps.
This photo shows Lange herself taking photos of evacuees on 6 April 1942.

 Unless otherwise noted, all images are by, or believed to be by Dorothea Lange and come from collections in the Library of Congress. Click to view full size. In some cases attribution to Dorothea Lange is uncertain. Even where I've put "photographer is unkown" the photos may well have been taken by her. They're of the same time frame and subject as the ones she's known to have taken and have the same qualities and point of view. Lange was born May 26, 1895, so, as it happens, yesterday was the 115th anniversary of her birth.

 Same source. In 1988, Congress passed and President Ronald Reagan signed legislation which apologized for the internment on behalf of the U.S. government. The legislation stated that government actions were based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership".
 It's not relevant to my story, but, as it happens, the camps were set up and people moved into them just at the time I was born.
