@irisn I recommend that everyone should visit at least one of the camps. I was able to visit The Heart Mountain Relocation Center outside of Cody, WY, it is quite moving.

@irisn Thank you so much for the link. Deeply moving photos, and certainly shows a side to the war that I was totally oblivious to.

At least they were fed and for the most part, survived. History shows that was not true for American POWs in Japan. They were far less fortunate.
Nice photography

Great share! Thanks! And @lisainstpete "At least they were fed..."???? It's not a competition.

@lisainstpete I agree that POW were treated despicably, however in the US these were American Citizens, now admittedly illegally interned just because of their ancestry. They were not soldiers in enemy country, these were families in their home country.
