Executive Order 9066: Incarcerate American Citizens

The Topaz Internment Baseball Field Remains

April 4, 2015

The Goal: Incarcerate 110,000 people of Japanese ancestry (2/3 of which were AMERICAN CITIZENS.)

In Topaz, Utah they built approximately 500 tar papered shacks that saw over 11,000 men, women, and children make a makeshift home between 1942 and 1945.

Topaz Internment Former Housing Barracks Site

Cleared of all vegetation, this isolated isolated outpost of inhumanity to man closed to allow people to rebuild their lives in a more hospitable political and temperate climate.
Each barracks was un-insulated and heated with a pot-bellied stove. Temps ranged from -30 to 106+.

A shameful episode of American history disappearing in the desert.
