While many returned to California, large groups of former prisoners settled in Chicago, New York, Minneapolis and elsewhere. Ultimately, and despite attempts by the WRA to “resettle,” the Japanese Americans faced racist violence, housing shortages and financial hardship. As World War II ended, the Japanese Americans found themselves among the millions of people around the world migrating to a new home, but this U.S. imposed migration had been generated by an executive order and domestic fear.
