I came across this passage and thought that the word 'evacuated' does not quite accurately show how Kiyomi and her family were forced to leave their home:
Kiyomi, a Japanese-American girl, and her family were evacuated from their home during the World War. The United States and Japan were at war. The US government compelled many Japanese Americans and their Japanese-born parents to leave their homes in special camps. The government interned Japanese-American families in camps because they were concerned that they might be working for Japan as spies.
Should the word 'evacuated' be replaced by something else? 'Evacuated' seems to suggests the idea that the occupants of a place are moved to a safer one. In this context, Kiyomi was forced to leave. What could be a more suitable word to replace 'evacuated'? Thanks.
