Excerpt from People in Motion: The Postwar Adjustment of the Evacuated Japanese Americans Description of the postwar adjustment of the evacuated Japanese Americans following their return to the main stream of life in American communities can best be stated in terms of motion. The evacuation, which was started in the early spring of 1942 at the order of the Western Defense Command of the United States Army did more than take 110,000 people from their homes in an area bordering the Pacific Coast into ten relocation centers constructed in remote areas between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Mississippi River. In addition to physical uprooting, it shattered the social and economic patterns which) had given a measure of stability to the prewar life of Japanese Americans. The sum of their past experience, as well as the new conditions faced in relocation and resettlement has been important in the postwar adjustment of these people. Intangible factors going back to the transplanted and already disintegrating old world social organization of the west coast Japanese communities, and the changed character of public opinion have had an effect on that adjustment. While it is important to note that the character of the prewar Little Tokyo communities had been changing toward the level of the wider community, the process was slow. With the evacuation came the complete uprooting of the Little Tokyos and the destruction of many cultural practices which had stabilized the immigrant communities. Attitudes of the wider community before the war were mixed, with a tendency to accept known individuals but to reject the group. As a group, the west coast Japanese Americans had not been permitted to become sufficiently a part of the total community to be allowed to go through the crisis of attack by Japan as Americans, The evacuation produced a profound psychological shock which has carried over in varying extent to the postwar adjustment period. Today, the most notable characteristic of the evacuated Japanese Americans is a feeling of unsettledness, of having unanswered questions concerning location, economic activity and social adjustment. Completion of the process of resettlement will require another five to ten years. The human effects of the evacuation will not be fully evident short of that time.
