April 1942: First-graders, some of Japanese ancestry, at the Weill public school, San Francisco, California, pledging allegiance to the United States flag. About 110.000 Japanese Americans and Japanese who lived along the Pacific coast of the United States were interned in camps called "War Relocation Camps" following the authorization from President Franklin D. Roosevelt in February 1942.
