"All Packed Up and Ready to Go"

Title

"All Packed Up and Ready to Go"

Subject

Japanese American relocation to an internment camp.

Description

An editorial cartoon showing loyal Japanese Americans being relocated to an internment camp facility located outside of a military zone and far from the city, supposedly "out of harm's way" as the sign next to the truck says.

This cartoon views the removal of Japanese Americans from society as a positive action. Most of the reporting at the time was favorable coverage of the deportations. This cartoon seems to agree with the attitude that it was safest for the Japanese Americans themselves if they were moved to military zones away from the general population. (i.e. "out of harm's way")
