Make it Manzanar. By David Toyoshima


Going to Camp!

Body Copy

This was no “summer camp.” Manzanar was essentially a prison camp. Over 10,000 Japanese Americans were removed from their homes and farms by armed U.S. soldiers and forced to spend their lives behind barbed wire and machine gun towers during the length of WW2. JAs were regarded, simply by their race, a “threat to national security.” They were law-abiding American citizens.
