Portraits and the stories from 60 of the 120,000 Japanese American incarceration survivors forcibly removed from their homes on the west coast of the United States to desolate concentration camps during WWII after President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942. The portraits are paired with the historical photographs of them taken by War Relocation Authority photographers such as Dorothea Lange, Clem Albers and Ansel Adams working independently.
