"No one should ever be locked away simple because they share the same race, ethnicity or religion as a spy or terrorist. If that principle was not learned from the internment of the Japanese Americans, then there is dangerous times for our democracy" Fred Korematsu #roadtrip #picoftheday #interestinglocation #californiaroadtrip #travel #traveltolearn #manzanar #japaneseinternmentcamp

May we never repeat the mistakes of the past. #manzanar #nationalhistoricsite
Think it can’t or won’t happen here? In 1942, the United States government ordered more than 110,000 men, women, and children to leave their homes and detained them in remote, military-style camps. Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of ten camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were incarcerated during #wwii . #bronica #manzanar #395 #believeinfilm #mediumformat #kodakportra #filmisnotdead #landscapephotography
What would we do without the wonderful and wise @alanrossphotography ?! Last week we posted the image, Mount Williamson, From Manzanar by Ansel Adams, along with a story that Ansel wrote about the making of said image, from the book, "Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs." Alan has seemingly debunked this story by finding the exact photograph location in 2007! Here are his words: "Wonderful image, but dear Ansel must have got the spot confused with another outing in the area. :-) The terrain is so rocky, there is no way he could have got his car into the exact spot - and the lens, was at eye-level, not car-top height."

Traveling the backroads between #manzanar and the #easternsierra seeing where #AnselAdams captured one of his iconic photographs, #mountwilliamson ,is definitely humbling. Just experiencing a fraction of what it took for Ansel to get out and get the shot. Finding the location, hiking out for the perfect spot, racing the changing light and moving storm, setting up the composition and having the patience to not press the shutter and wait for the opportune moment to “make” the “photograph” a masterpiece. I was not able to hike out amongst the boulders with my 8x10 because of injuring my foot the morning before in the White Mountains, but I did find a spot just off the road for a couple photographs. I shot a color image and this #infared #blackandwhitephotograph I opted to go with the #blackandwhite it seemed to work out better from where I was able to shoot. This is a spot I will be venturing out to in the future. #nikon #landscapephotography #madewithmefoto #peakdesign #sigma #lonepine

Manzanar National Historic Site. Located on the 395 freeway between Los Angeles and Mammoth Lakes, California rests a somber part of American history. “In 1942 the US government ordered over 110,000 men, women and children of Japanese decent to leave their homes and belongings and detained them in remote- military style camps. Two-thirds of them were born in America. Not one was convicted of espionage or sabotage. For 10,000 of them, Manzanar would be their new home.” Hopefully we learned a hard lesson here. Never forget. . . . #travelfamily #manzanar #nationalhistoricsite #california #desert #southerncalifornia #socaltravelfriends #explore #travelmom #visitcalifornia #mammoth #neverforget

“Monument to console the souls of the dead” . . In the months following the Pearl Harbor attack of Dec. 7, 1941, more than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced to leave their homes and businesses and relocate to one of 10 camps scattered across the West. Manzanar was home to more than 10,000 of them. Not one of them was convicted of espionage or sabotage. History, even when it hurts. #manzanar
すごく好みな舞台を見て来た🇯🇵🇺🇸カリフォルニア州に実在したマンザナ日系人強制収容所を舞台にした物語りで、井上ひさしさんらしいダジャレが日英でたくさん出て来て、自分の幼少期と重なる差別のシーンも多々あり、すごく良かった。 でも何より良かったのは、見に行こうと誘ってくれたのが大人になってから、しかも勉強会で出来た純ジャパのお友達だったということ。10年前の自分に大丈夫だよ、日本人の優しいお友達も出来るようになるから安心なさいと教えてあげたい、、 #マンザナわが町 #井上ひさし #こまつ座 #紀伊國屋ホール #manzanar

@Regrann from @sarahemilia - A question for my fellow outdoor adventurers, especially those who frequent the #easternsierras and #highway395 : have you taken the time to visit Manzanar, one of ten sites in the US where 110,000+ people of Japanese ancestry were incarcerated during WWII? I ask because I couldn’t help but notice the racial disparities between the hiking trails of the sierras and the Manzanar visitor center, when I visited for the first time over Labor Day weekend. Lots of white folks on the trail, yet not as many stopping to learn more about this dark chapter in our country’s shared history. This isn’t a national historic site for only Japanese-Americans, like myself, to remember. What happened was yet another atrocity our government committed against our own people, on our own soil. We MUST learn that this is where unchecked hatred, bigotry and racism lead. When one group of people suffer at the hands of xenophobia, white supremacy and dehumanization, we ALL suffer. And look, I totally get that it’s in the middle of nowhere— that was kind of the whole point. But I encourage you to consider even just driving through this memorial the next time you find yourself amidst the gorgeous lakes and mountains of the eastern sierras. We must take collective ownership of our past, so it may never be repeated ever again. #neveragain #manzanar #ourstory #nps #diversifyoutdoors #sheexplores #japaneseamerican #nationalparkservice #getoutside #thisisamerica . . . [Image: Photo of Japanese American @sarahemilia in front of the #慰靈塔 Soul Consoling Tower, a white obelisk that marked the internment camp cemetery and is now a shrine. The tower was constructed by Ryozo Kado in 1943. It is also the site of an annual pilgrimage. Manzanar is located on Paiute ancestral land.] . . .

Manzanar National Historic Site is located a few miles north of Lone Pine. Manzanar was one of ten war relocation centers built during World War II to temporarily house people of Japanese ancestry following FDR signing Executive Order 9066. Between March of 1942 and November of 1945, more than 10,000 men, women, and children lived at Manzanar — most of them U.S. citizens. . While almost no original structures remain, there are recreations of barracks, a mess hall, and a latrine. The visitor center features exhibits about the camp and area history, plus a film and a bookstore. Entrance is free. . The obelisk is located in the cemetery. The kanji characters mean “soul consoling tower.” . . . #gonestreamin #manzanar #manzanarnationalhistoricsite #california #warrelocationcenter #nationalparkservice #findyourpark
120.000 americans were kept in detention camps around the US between 1942 and 1945. They did not break any law, they did nothing bad they only wrongdoig was their race, they were guilty of japanese origin. 10.000 of them were kept in the shadow of the highest mountain in the US, in the #manzanar camp. The camp is still there as and serves as a memorial to one of the biggest failures of democracy in the US.
A dark reminder of a sad moment in America's history, a guard tower set against a beautiful backdrop of the Eastern Sierra's. This site is the remnants of the Japanese internment camps that once stood here. . . . #manzanar #astrophotography #summernights #astro #milkyway #longexposure #nightphotography #universe #photopills #sonyalpha #outdoors #soloadventure #nightpic #stars #nightsk #nightscape #galaxy #highway395 #sierranevada
On the way home we drove past this and decided to turn around, couldn't remember why that name sounded familiar and then realized it was the old Japanese relocation center during World War II. I had always wanted to see this and finally got to check it off the bucket list. #exploringcalifornia #history #manzanar
After a lifetime of driving up hwy 395, we finally stopped at Manzanar. We’re so glad we did but it’s such a sad part of our history. Wonder why we didn’t learn more about this in school? The monument at the cemetery is inscribed in “kanji” and the characters mean “soul consoling tower”. #manzanar

Driving home from Mammoth we stopped at Manzanar, the former internment camp where 10,000 Japanese-Americans were involuntarily sent to during the war years 1942-1945. #manzanar #neverforget #wwii
This is an old edit I did of photos I took. I went to a Japanese Interment Camp, Manzanar, a couple years ago with my sisters and grandparents. This was the monument at the the center of the graveyard. 慰霊塔 (ireitõ), meaning "Monument to console the souls of the dead." There were paper cranes everywhere from visiting tourists or maybe from people visiting graves of their ancestors. • #Manzanar #JapaneseIntermentCamp #Monument #PaperCranes #PhotoEdit #EditByMe #blackitsuneyuki #blackitsuneyukiart

Ansel Adams did not enlist during World War II, but he very much wanted to make some patriotic contribution. Ralph Merritt, a Sierra Club friend and the director of the Manzanar Relocation Center, urged Adams to document the Japanese Americans interned at the center in Manzanar, California. Adams made hundreds of photographs there during 1943 and 1944. On one of his visits, he drove to a spot overlooking a field of boulders and took this picture. “There was a glorious storm going on in the mountains,” he wrote. “I set up my camera on the rooftop platform of my car,” which “enabled me to get a good view over the boulders to the base of the range.” Image: Mount Williamson from Manzanar, 1944 by Ansel Adams

Former grave of Toshiro Gerald Ogata at Manzanar's cemetery. Baby Jerry died at two months old of a congenital heart defect. After he died his parents were moved to Tule Lake, possibly because they were "No-Nos" (I couldn't confirm, but that's the most common reason why prisoners were transferred there from the time of Jerry's death.). Presumably he was reburied elsewhere by his parents after they were released from Tule Lake (Couldn't confirm that, either.). . . . #lust4travel #InyoCounty #Manzanar #OwensValley #California #USA #EasternSierra #395 #concentrationcamp #sierranevada #abc7eyewitness #CBSLA #KTLA #NBC4You #UGLAgrammers #california_igers #jj_california #igersusa @usaprimeshot #icu_usa #TheAmericanCollective #wow_america #just_unitedstates #bestusapics #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #roadtrip #sunsetmag #cemetery #tombstone #graveyard_life

Grave of Matsunosuke Murakami, the first person to die while imprisoned at Manzanar. He was 62 years old when he died of pneumonia and heart failure. Murakami was already ill when he arrived at Manzanar and had been hospitalized for almost two months before he died. He was likely cared for by fellow internees while in the hospital, as very few Caucasians were on staff there. . . . #lust4travel #InyoCounty #Manzanar #OwensValley #California #USA #EasternSierra #395 #concentrationcamp #sierranevada #abc7eyewitness #CBSLA #KTLA #NBC4You #UGLAgrammers #california_igers #jj_westcoast #igersusa @usaprimeshot #icu_usa #TheAmericanCollective #wow_america #just_unitedstates #bestusapics #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #roadtrip #sunsetmag #cemetery #graveyard
#OTD in 1993 Susie Watamura was interviewed for the #Manzanar Children's Village #OralHistory project. Watamura described life at the Manzanar Relocation Center, compared pre and post-war prejudice, and talked about the importance of preserving this part of history. #coph #csuf
The Cowboy is never one to pass a historical marker or monument. En route to #xladvhighsierra2018 he once again stopped at Manzanar, a Japanese internment camp that is being restored. It was sobering, humbling, infuriating, heart-breaking. The Cowboy cares deeply about the plight of his fellow man, past, present, and future, and knows his history well. #History #Manzanar #WWII #TheTwoWheelCowboy #Shame #NeverForget #Internment
Soul Consoling Tower, Manzanar Cemetery . This memorial, one of the few items left from the original prison, was designed by prisoner Ryozo Kado and paid for and built in 1943 by other internees. . The second photo shows mementos left by visitors to the cemetery. . The wording on the back side of the obelisk (slide three) says "August 1943" and "erected by the Manzanar Japanese". . . . #lust4travel #InyoCounty #Manzanar #OwensValley #California #USA #EasternSierra #395 #concentrationcamp #sierranevada #abc7eyewitness #CBSLA #KTLA #NBC4You #UGLAgrammers #california_igers #jj_california #igersusa @usaprimeshot #icu_usa #TheAmericanCollective #wow_america #just_unitedstates #bestusapics #findyourpark #nationallandmark #nationalparkservice #roadtrip #sunsetmag #cemetery
