Item # 222712.
Soon after President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, this Civilian Exclusion Order and others like it, began appearing in public places all along the West Coast to notify people of Japanese ancestry of their impending forced removal from their homes. The orders instructed people to pack only what they could carry. Most of them suffered tremendous economic losses in addition to the humiliation of an unjust incarceration.
This is an archival digital print of an original Civilian Exclusion Order from JANM’s permanent collection. Created using 100% acid-free cotton fine art paper and the highest quality pigmented, non-toxic, environmentally friendly ink available with a color permanence rating of at least 200 years.
