Farewell to Manzanar

You know it happened. But do you really know what happened?

Injustice in Manzanar

110,000 Japanese were forcefully evacuated to relocation camps, on the ground that the Japanese were potentially disloyal.


There was never a single case of Japanese disloyalty or sabotage in the entire war.


The Touching True Story of a Japanese American Family during and after World War II

Farewell to Manzanar is the true story of one spirited Japanese American family's attempt to survive the indignities of forced detention . . . and of a native-born American child who discovered what it was like to grow up behind barbed wire in the United States.
