War Bonds: Debt securities issued by a government for the purpose of financing military operations during times of war. It is an emotional appeal to patriotic citizens to lend the government their money because these bonds offer a rate of return below the market rate. Investopedia Says...

Even though they were Canadian citizens they were considered the enemy and thus they lost their homes and contents in the homes. Unfair? You bet it was! At least they should have put them into more comfortable lodgings in the camps and kept their homes and contents for them to come back too. Just recently the Canadian Gov't had to pay per Japanese person and their children a $17,000 for this treatment. It did nothing to take the nightmarish trauma away and the loss they incurred.
