Lange's Photos of the Internment of Japanese-Americans

The U.S. War Relocation Authority hired photographer Dorothea Lange to document the relocation of Japanese-Americans to internment camps during World War II. It horrified her, but she felt it was important to record what has happening. "This is what we did. How did it happen? How could we? Now, I have never had a comfortable feeling about that war relocation job," she later said.
