Homes in the camps were barrack style, personal touches provided little comfort

Girls were gathered for classes, taught by whites

Those that gave all in battle are not forgotten

Farming was done by internees in the camps

Rows upon rows of tarpaper covered barracks were home to Japanese Americans detained by the Government

The Foundation sponsors and conducts many events around the country. All of these events support our mission of conducting outreach and education that we might not lose the memory of the Japanese American experience during World War II.
The lessons learned must remain as a grave reminder of what we must not allow to happen again to any group.
