Instructions to All Persons of Japanese Ancestry.... [San Francisco]: June 30, 1942.
Broadside (560 x 355 mm). Horizontal crease, evenly toned, tape repairs at corners, mainly to verso.
Shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, Franklin Roosevelt authorized the internment of persons of Japanese heritage living in America. Over 110,000 people were interned, many of whom were American citizens, and some of which were only 1/16th Japanese. General John L. DeWitt, who issues the present order, is famously quoted as saying: "A Jap is a Jap." The present broadside gives instructions to the Japanese residents for a number of inland counties in Northern and Central California for evacuation under Civilian Exclusion Order No. 102.
