In Remembrance of the Injustice Caused by
the Federal Relocation of Italians in
America During World War II
From February 24, 1942 to October 12, 1942, nearly 1600 Italian residents of Pittsburg, California, having been declared "enemy aliens," were unjustly banned from their homes, work and communities and forced to relocate elsewhere by the U.S. Government following its entrance into World War II. "Enemy aliens" in name only, many of these Italians had made America their homeland for decades, had American-born children, and had sons and daughters and other relatives serving with valor in the U.S. Armed Forces. With their families, they had been, and would always remain, Americans loyal to their adopted country.

To them, for the unnecessary hardships they and 600,000
other Italians in America Nationwide endured,
This memorial is dedicated
