Taken: Oregonians Arrested after Pearl Harbor

Licensing

This album illustrates the experiences of families in Oregon taken into custody and imprisoned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Justice (DoJ) as a result of the bombing of the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by Imperial Japanese fighter planes on December 7, 1941.

In this lesser known prelude to Executive Order 9066, which led to the internment of Japanese Americans for the duration of World War II, prominent members of the Japanese American community — mostly men — were rounded up by FBI agents just hours after the bombing. Shackled and whisked away, often after dark with no explanation offered them or their stunned and bewildered families, they were then sent to "special" camps in remote, secret sites across the United States, different from the ones their families would begin to occupy in the summer of 1942.

Based on the exhibit Taken: FBI , curated by the Oregon Nikkei Endowment.
