The Pearl Harbor attack intensified existing hostility towards Japanese Americans. As wartime hysteria mounted, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 forcing over 120,000 West Coast persons of Japanese ancestry to leave their homes, jobs, and lives behind and move to one of ten relocation centers. This single largest forced relocation in U.S. history is Minidoka's story. Minidoka Internment National Monument is located in Idaho.
