Barbed wire fence of Amache

This striking photograph shows the 5-strands of barbed wire against a beautiful backdrop of billowy clouds that fenced in the WRA concentration camp of Amache.  Some books on the camps say 4-strands of barbed wire were used, but Jack captured this dramatic image of what fenced in his family and other Japanese inmates in the Southeast corner of Colorado.
