American gulag. And they are all about the Stalinist repression ...

45
When the word “deportation” is pronounced in Russia, an image often arises that is actively developed from the so-called Gorbachev perestroika - deportation of the Crimean Tatars, deportation of the Chechen people, the spirit of Stalinist repression and everything like that. When the word "internment" is pronounced in Russia, the image of the sensational Katyn storieswhen Polish officers were taken to the territory of specially equipped camps of the NKVD, and then, allegedly solely by the forces of the NKVD, again in the spirit of Stalinist repression, were shot, having covered thousands of corpses with raw Smolensk soil.


For millions of Russians, all these images became so firmly associated with the Soviet past that the call to repent, which came about, which is interesting, more often from Western “partners”, was taken for granted. They repented, repented, under the malicious cries of liberal "comrades" who on a permanent basis declared that, they say, the West, which is democratic and humanistic, could not allow any deportations and internment to help "unwashed and uneducated" Russia to understand its monstrous guilt in front of individual nations.

Certainly, the deportation of Chechens, Crimean Tatars, representatives of other nations (whole nations!) During the Great Patriotic War is not a bright page in the history of our multi-ethnic and multi-religious state. This is grief, pain and grief of thousands of families. And this grief, pain and grief still echo rend the soul. All this is understandable, and modern Russia does not try to forget about it at all, does not make attempts to cross out the whole chapter of its great history.

And in this regard, the attempts of “friends” of Russia to declare that deportation and internment are only from Soviet history look like a thousand-fold hypocrisy, and that in other countries (countries of “victorious democracy”) there was no such thing during the Second World War, and could not be by definition. Wasn’t it? .. If our liberal “friends” are trying to convince us of this, then let's turn to a story that will reveal some interesting facts about the partners in the anti-Hitler coalition. And July 3 may be the day when it will be quite reasonable to do it.

So, July 3 is a distant 1890 of the year. Exactly 125 years ago, the US is growing its 43 state - Idaho. It would seem, what have the 43-th American state and the story about the deportation and internment? But even with that ... It was Idaho that became the American state in which during World War II the largest camps were created for the deportation of the Japanese population of the United States, the camp for internment of the Japanese, most of which, most importantly, had citizenship United States of America. The systems of these camps may well be considered the American "Gulag", which has ground thousands of lives.

And the question is: did the current American authorities repent, did the living generations of Americans repent for the fact that innocent people were driven to concentration camps, from which thousands of families of American citizens of Japanese origin did not return? .. It seems that if a modern American to ask whether he is ready to repent for the crimes of the previous authorities, the absolute majority will simply round his eyes and declare that he does not understand at all what other crimes are being discussed ... The USA is the victors in the Second World War - that's every American knows about, and the USA is the initiator of the creation of a considerable number of concentration camps for internees - the “impudent anti-American lie and no more” ...

Well ... About the truth, which was forgotten in the USA today, and about which local “human rights activists” are for some reason not ready to remind.

Washington subjected deportation and internment to special camps to a total of over 120 thousands of Japanese. About 12 thousands of them were kept in special camps in Idaho - Minidok camp and a camp located near the cities of Kuskiya. Most of the deportees are Japanese with American passports who lived on the west coast of the United States.

American gulag. And they are all about the Stalinist repression ...

Minidoc Concentration Camp (Idaho, USA)


Famous Japanese-American Americans were also kept in the Minidok camp: composer Paul Chihara, writer Mitsue Yamada, writer John Okada, actor Roger Shimamura, and others.

In the States, if I may say so, today the “widely unknown” directive of President Franklin Roosevelt from February 19 of the year 1942. This is an emergency decree №9066, which gave the military administration the authority to evict people into pre-prepared special camps. There is no clear indication of what kind of nationality should be deported in the first place, as Roosevelt’s decree does not exist, but this issue did not arise. By that time, anti-Japanese hysteria was going off scale. The decree referred to "special actions in relation to persons representing ethnic groups of states not friendly to the United States." The first among those, of course, is Japan - this is how the question was perceived by the Americans.


Camp "Tule Lake"


It was this extraordinary decree in a “democratic state” that led to the fact that more than 120 thousands of Japanese living in the US, as well as about 11 thousands of Germans and at least 3 thousands of Italians, were deported and interned. Thus, about 135 of thousands of people, the American state has actually officially counted among the "agents of foreign intelligence services" and "spies" conducting anti-American activities that require constant monitoring in special camps.


Forced labor in camps (color photo taken by the administration of the camp "Tule Lake")


Almost 30% of the territory of the United States, according to this decree, was divided into the so-called military zones, and the heads of each of these zones received virtually unlimited rights to deport all those whom they consider anti-American.


Collection of deported luggage. People - separately, property - separately


By the spring of 1942, anti-Japanese sentiment simply overwhelmed the United States, and a large-scale information campaign began that aimed to justify the mass relocation of Japanese people to special camps and to sow hatred of US citizens of Japanese origin from other ethnic groups living in the States. In the United States, a blatant street harassment of Japanese citizens and denunciations to the police that a Japanese family lives in such and such a house - of course, the family of “spies” was considered not shameful ... Moreover, the Japanese were brought to special camps from countries with which the United States border - Mexico, Canada. And even Japanese from Panama and Peru were brought to Idaho camps!



American newspapers of the time convey the spirit of hysteria.

Los Angeles Times:

A viper is always a viper no matter where it hatched. And an American of Japanese descent, born to Japanese parents, grows up Japanese, but not American.


American farmers advocate the eviction of the Japanese (in the original - "Japs") in special areas. Farmers will grow the agricultural products that the Japanese grew, and do not want them to return even after the end of the war.



Japanese family who received special tags before relocation


What was the content of the deported and interned in special camps of the US military administrations? These are most often wooden huts without sewage and lighting.



In the northern states of the United States, in which the deported Japanese erected barracks for themselves, there was often no heating in the form of ordinary burzhuek stoves. As a result, the temperature inside the barracks in the harsh winters fell below minus 20 Celsius. People died from hunger and frostbite.


Special Camp Manzanar (California, USA)


To find food for themselves, people tried to break through the barbed wire fences. There is a lot of evidence from contemporaries of the events, telling that the guards shot those who tried to break through the "thorn" in search of mushrooms or berries. In winter, the deportees dug snow to extract frozen grass and at least diversify their diet. Infectious diseases spread in the camps, and the camp administration did not try to stop this spread. There was a tacit directive stating that the fewer deported Japanese left in camps, the better — more economical ... And those fewer and fewer indeed remained. Accurate data on how much has disappeared in the American "Gulag", is not presented until now. And one more thing about the American economy - the absolute majority of people were not taken to special camps, but were forced to get there (attention!) At their own expense! .. The instruction was kept that Japanese families in the United States had to report that they had complied with the law and themselves moved to the concentration camp. Cynicism, which in the history still search!



And further from the series “special democratic cynicism”. Franklin Roosevelt's Emergency Decree of February 1942 was canceled ... in 1976! Four years later, the United States established a commission to investigate episodes of the unconstitutional acts of the US authorities during the war years. As a result, the commission came to the "amazing" conclusion: the mass resettlement of the Japanese was not justified. Each of the survivors of the camps, the US government appointed compensation in the amount of $ 20 thousand, and only those who at that time had a passport of an American citizen. Given the fact that tens of thousands of Japanese began to abandon their American citizenship while in special camps, compensation was not given to everyone who survived after camp arbitrariness. With monetary compensation and a statement about the “groundlessness of resettlement”, the “repentance” of the Americans was completed.

The last time about the mass deportation of the Japanese population of the United States was remembered in 1998 year - then the last Japanese who survived in American camps came to light, who were transferred 20 thousand dollars as an “apology”.


"Memorial" at the site of the special camp "Topaz"


And, in fact, everything ... The history page is turned over, and nobody remembers the American “Gulag” in the USA today, for democracy ... FOR DEMOCRACY! ..

    So that's why the Japanese love the United States, and also for the nuclear hell of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Is this the national Japanese masochism or something ???

        Of course, the deportation of Chechens, Crimean Tatars, representatives of other peoples (entire nations!) During the years of World War II is far from a bright page in the history of our multinational and multiconfessional state. It is the sorrow, pain and grief of thousands of families.

        Become very right and necessary.

        Maybe the right and the right article ...
        But do not the deported peoples want to admit that the authorities had 100% reason for this ?!
        With such a rampage of banditry and desertion, this measure, in a warring country, is very humane.

          In wartime conditions, the enemy is not left behind (alive) - let them bow to their feet (those who made the decision to relocate) - they survived, and not to camps for displaced persons, as in the First World War 1914. (in Austria for Russian speakers) and in World War II 1942. in the USA (for Japanese, Germans, Italians, etc.).

    Well, I have known this story for a long time.
    Another was impressive - the law was adopted, and the execution of the law is mandatory.
    Get the order to go to the camp, pack the luggage (normalized, probably), take it to the indicated place, then go to the concentration camp yourself, when you get there - make a report about your actions.
    I like it .... you don’t even have to take a steam bath, the courts are there, the files are bruised on the teeth of the people under investigation, the trackers are sleeping quietly, the gripers aren’t straining - in short, everyone is fine. Democracy, damn it. This is not a dictatorship.
    ...
    And the settlements for the Indians, which we do not remember, are reservations.
    By our standards, this is a "defeat in rights".
    We were "on the horns" from 5 to 10 years - in the States for life.
    And few people bother.
    Democracy, damn it.
    .
    This is still, dear Alex did not dig about the British and Dutch.
    Americans, in that case, weren’t lying at all in comparison with what these friends were doing in the colonies.
    .....
    ...
    And most of all touched - the American flag in the middle of a concentration camp for Americans. Even not convicted.

      By the way, it seems like the democratic ancestors of these democrats contributed to the destruction and destroyed:

      North Indians, several million, remained at the beginning of the 20th century about 200 thousand.
      Indians, in 1943 alone in Bengal, more than 1,5 million people.
      Africans, a hundred million, and enslaved more than ten million, the nature there was not very friendly to the "democrats".
      Australians, almost all - a million, 10 thousand left.
      The Chinese, about 300 million, during the planting of democratic opium markets - opium wars.

      Russia - Western democratic reforms of the 90s, Cold War, WWII, Civil War, World War I, Japanese, Russian-Turkish, Crimean, again Russian-Turkish, Patriotic 1, again Russian-Turkish, Russian-Swedish, etc. into the depths of history - in all these wars Russian blood was wasted and behind all of the above one can see the "ears" of these Europeans. I think, together, under a hundred million.

      By the way, not all are listed.

    What can I say, the concentration camp system was worked out even during the time of the depression ... the so-called labor camps, where the unemployed ended up and injected into a bowl of soup.
    They do not like and classified mortality in times of depression ... it was a famine in the USSR, and they have paradise.

    Of course, the deportation of Chechens, Crimean Tatars, representatives of other peoples (whole nations!) During the Great Patriotic War is far from a bright page in the history of our multinational and multi-confessional state ... modern Russia does not try to forget about it at all, does not make attempts to cross out the whole chapter of his great story.


    And what, in fact, to forget? How did the Chechens and Tatars raise riots, helped the Germans and worked against the USSR? Yes, not all, but many. In the reports of the NKVD in the pre-war and war years, it was clearly indicated who, when, what and why. Moreover, the peak of anti-Soviet protests and direct work for the enemy fell on the war years. So it was decided to evict these "fighters for ..." away to the rear. Do not shoot, do not rot in the camps, just evict. So that they work and do not stuff their heads with crap.
    Were there errors and excesses during operations? Yes. Was there cruelty? Also, apparently, yes. But after all, not friends were taken to a picnic. And accomplices of the enemy! Moreover, not all were taken out. An illustrative example is the family of the pilot hero Akhmet-Khan Sultan. During his visit home to the Crimea was eviction. The sultan managed to defend his parents, but his brother was taken away. True, his brother served in the auxiliary police unit. What did you usually do with the cops? They hung, shot, at best, planted. And the brother of the Sultan was simply evicted.
    So do not sing in a liberalistic dudu, but to study the sources. It clearly states - there were heroes among the evicted peoples, real warriors, and there were traitors. The latter are often larger.

    As for the States ... And you just have to yell at every corner about their deeds, including with concentration camps for their own citizens. Yes, scream! And strew the facts. And send inquiries to the UN and write articles. That is, to conduct an information war according to all the rules of our time. And do not pay attention to a separate moo, supposedly, it was a long time ago and they apologized! Not a damn thing! It was! Illegally! And massively!
    And about the prisoners of the Red Army who perished in the camps of Poland in the 20s, there were thousands there! And about the Russian golden Kolchak, which the Czechs took to their home and founded the Legia bank. We must not forget and forgive anything! The time is now such that modest snoozing in the corner does not touch, but makes a fool and a weakling!
    Look at the 39-year pact between the USSR and Germany still mumble - they say, a mistake of the Stalinist regime! Not a fuck! It was a victory for Stalin and his team! A wedge driven between England, France and Germany! A chance to get time and peace for at least 2 years!
    The mistake is Khrushchev’s deal to switch to the international dollar system, this is Gorbach’s treacherous throwing, this is Yeltsin’s drunken vomit!

    Often, work for the enemy is not loud screams and abuse on their own. This is a modest quiet silence about the truth. And hiding this very truth. What is happening now. And attempts to talk about the truth stumble upon an inconspicuous, but effective silence and prevention. Good tactics in the vast shattered Empire!

      Your logic is rather weak. If the Americans evicted the Japanese, it’s an abomination about which it is necessary to go to the UN, if Stalin, then this is wisdom. "It clearly says - there were heroes among the deported peoples, real warriors, and there were traitors. The latter are often more." - Well, I understand everything with the latter, but what about the former? have you tried?
      Frankly, I have not yet encountered a coherent explanation for the mass eviction, for all the people cannot be a traitor.

The general execution, according to the law of wartime, was replaced by expulsion, and how much hatred spilled out. JV STALIN believed in the humanity of even such degenerates. Then they forgave everything and they believed in impunity, and repeated all this with atrocities and the slave trade in the 90s.

    I read somewhere (and the film is doc.) A comparison in numbers of those killed and executed in Russia and in civilized Europe. The hair is moving. Moreover, our rulers, as a rule, did little execution (mostly) for the cause, it is clear that there are different cases, in this I mean the picture in general. And they brought down bundles and, as a rule, under far-fetched or religious pretexts. And the states, in principle, the founders of concentration camps.

    It is surprising that the United States did not "lose" the archival data about this tragedy, as in the case of the Indian genocide.

    The Japanese were engaged in cannibalism, the terrible killings of prisoners, even worse than the Germans. In fact, the most perverted nation, let them go with their torment.

      Forgot to mention Detachment 731.
      But in this case we are discussing not them, but the Americans and their love to hang labels on others without noticing the logs at home. hi

    Something I didn’t read about the thousands of Japanese who died in these camps. And I don’t see photos of living people looking like corpses. But I saw these photos from our camps. Not one, many. Not in photoshop. And our numbers, even if it’s not true, and to divide them, for example, into 3, are terrifying.

      It is written about -20 in American barracks and what it led to.

    Of course, I heard about the deportation of the Japanese, but I did not think that everything was so cynical. The amount of compensation received is interesting.

    The Japanese are what else. Back in the 60s, they did not consider blacks as people. Can you imagine in the USSR a sign "a toilet for Uzbeks" and next to it "a toilet for everyone else"? It's easy in the USA! Who is the evil empire? Only in the 70s did the changes begin. But even then, even nowadays in some southern states it is not safe for blacks to wander past the farms of some particularly Orthodox white southerners - you can get a bullet.
    By the way, in the USA, despite all the ostentatious tolerance, the colored / white fault line is much sharper and more dangerous than any similar frictions we have along the Russian / Caucasians line. We can say everything is peaceful and good-natured. I would be in the place of our special services in every way possible to contribute to the struggle for democracy by US blacks. Well, there, an NGO would open all sorts of funds to support blacks, I would import cookies into bags (we have very tasty oatmeal!). Perhaps in a couple of years the revolution of black dignity will begin. You never know.

    In the memoirs of the commander of the German tank company, Otto Carius, well-described stay in captivity with the Americans. Somehow it was erased from the memory of the Germans, and after all, 1 million (!) People did not return from the AMERICAN captivity. So the story of US citizens of Japanese descent is a flower compared to these atrocities. Karius is a serious opponent, a knight of the Knight's Cross with Oak leaves (an analog, if such a comparison is appropriate, twice to the Hero of the Soviet Union). He wrote memoirs, trying not to offend the owners, but restrained himself with difficulty. A little off topic, but it’s hard not to give such an example of the mental abilities of representatives of a better nation. This tanker managed to fight both on the Eastern Front and on the Western. According to his recollections, when German sappers perekolachival signs on road poles, the Americans were easily led to these tricks for oligophrenics. With the Russians, the fascist writes, such numbers did not pass.

      If you look at "Sportloto-66", it seems, and the trick with the signs will become uninteresting.
      I think that in the States, ours will also be difficult, if the locals take it, and change the signs. Especially on such roads.
      .
      And now, the Germans perekolivali at us .... this is a very interesting moment. Poles with German pointers very often flash in films. And I don’t remember a single Russian signpost except for the state border sign. But the mass of girls with flags in their hands.
      Do we need pointers? We are used to giant expanses. To directions, not roads.
      Signpost - "To Moscow - in that direction, 1200 km. Through swamps - 800".
      And why such a pointer to re-roll?

    An informative article for those who are campaigning to "get out of this country". I wish you good luck in your new place.

    But it should be recalled that a regiment was formed from American Japanese citizens, which fought in Europe. Its peculiarity turned out to be the largest in the US armed forces awarded with military awards!
