This garden -- only one of two in all of Manzanar that features stone Japanese lanterns -- is in Block 15 between Building 7 and Building 15 recreation hall, which was used during the war as Manzanar's Protestant Church. Kiichiro Muto, with the help of his neighbor Roy Sugawara, constructed the garden in front of the barracks room where Kiichiro and his wife, Hatsu, lived. The August 12, 1942 issue of the Manzanar Free Press noted, "One of the most beautiful fish ponds in the center is found at Block 15 recreation hall. The pond is kidney shaped with a miniature bridge at the narrowest points..."
School trip to Manzanar. This trip was a great experience for me and other students to see how just a little bit of prejudice can turn the whole country on a single race and strip away everything they own including their humanity. @manzanarcommittee #manzanar #manzanarnationalhistoricsite #History #california

Twin twist. Aud is on a field trip at Manzanar while ev is snowboarding in the distant mountains. I asked ev for a pic of Sierras but she pretty much ignored that stuff. Then sister sends this -we’re here. So I got my picture after all #sierranevada #mammothmountain #manzanar #twinsofinstagram 👌💕
on our drive to LA on 395, chris & i stopped at one of my most favorite historical sites ive ever visited. chris knows how much i love history, so he made us stop here. there were roughly 120,000 american japanese civillians interned here durring world war 2. FDR signed executive order 9066 which made american japanese citizens be housed in one of 10 of these internment/relocation camps. my boo @chris_seega knows me so well, hes such an amazing guy #manzanar #warrelocation #worldwar2 #japanese #warishell #internmentorconcentrationcamp #FDR #executiveorder9066 #hwy395
It had been a while since I hit the road. Events kept popping up on my long weekends until finally I had one completely free! Weather even kept my options open too, so where did I go? Nowhere. I wasted my opportunity. I was paralyzed by indecision, and before I knew it Sunday morning was upon me. My weekend was over. Fed up with myself I had to salvage something. Late in the morning I filled up my gas tank and headed north! I just needed some open road, so #US395 would be the cure to my ailment. I made my way to Bishop for jerky. Getting #jerky was the #MacGuffin , it more or less just gave me a direction to go, the excuse for the solitude. By most accounts it was a short one with no real purpose other than to get my fix. Like any addict it wasn’t enough. It never is. But hopefully it’s just enough to get me to the next one... #AnayaOnTheRoad #SierraNevadas #SierraNevada #Manzanar As for the pic, I’m not much of a filter guy, but this one looked cool. In general I’m not much of a post process guy aside from lightening up some darker pics.
Took Dad to Manzanar today. It is a desolate patch of Earth, surrounded by stunning mountains. I wondered again at the Japanese people who had been asked to pledge allegiance to their captors there, and who had done their best in impossible circumstances. We are repeating history now. It was never and never will be okay.
@machewdadinosaur wanted to see the Manzanar Relocation Camp. Afterwards we headed out to Death Valley to check out the Badwater Basin. #manzanar #deathvalley #badwaterbasin #explore #adventure #adventuretime #wanderer #history
Just a reminder: tomorrow, Saturday, December 15th, 2018, at 1:00 pm, Dr. Arthur A. Hansen will be presenting his new career-spanning book, Barbed Voices: Oral History, Resistance, and the World War II Japanese American Social Disaster. The program will take place at Manzanar National Historic Site, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session as well as a book signing. @esinterp will be providing refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there! #manzanar
Manzanar ...American Concentration camp where 10,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War ll. #manzanar #worldwar2 #japaneseinternment #highway395california
My Kentucky education never spoke of the Japanese Internment Camps. It was my dad who told me about them and when I brought it to the attention of my history teacher during out WWII lesson, it was glossed over as NBD. Fast forward 15 years, I’m living in SoCal, and a friend tells me about how she her elementary class read, “Farewell to Manzanar” and how she hadn’t been cognizant that the Manzanar she read about was a few hours away. The Japanese Interment camp is now a California State Park. The propaganda used to persuade the American public that the Japanese were being kindly cared for claimed they were in resort-like location at the foothills of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains sounds oddly familiar to the propaganda today claiming the Latino children placed in cages and getting raped and dying of illness in near the boarders are just like summer camp. I travelled all over Europe in search of the history of concentration camps when America has several of its own. Places like Manzanar (and cotton/sugar plantation in the south) serve as stark reminders of the darker decisions made in American history. It was an eye opening, soul stirring visit. ⠀⠀ #history #japanesehistory #americanhistory #blackhistory #manzanar #sierranevada #mountains #americandream #cherryblossom #outdoors #outdoorphins #californiaadventure #japaneseinternment #socal #socality #blacktravelmovement #wegotoo #historybuff #travelhistory #americathebeautiful #blacktravelistas #blacktraveljourney #blackgirlstravel #blackgirlmagic #roadtrip #all50states #greatamericanroadtrip #naturelover #concentrationcamp #wwii
On this day in 1973 former COPH director, Art Hansen, interviewed Robert Brown, a former staff member at the Manzanar War Relocation Center for the Japanese American Oral History project. Brown recalled the formation and development of the camp, as well as the origination and growth of the Manzanar Free Press. Hansen will return to Manzanar this Saturday, December 15th at 1 pm to discuss his new book "Barbed Voices." #otd #oralhistory #manzanar #coph #history @csuf_history

Manzanar in December. Much appreciation to the kind Park Service employees here who are prepared with boxes of Kleenex for when visitors cry. #manzanar #manzanarnationalhistoricsite #executiveorder9066 #eo9066 #japaneseamericaninternment #japaneseamericanhistory #japaneseamerican #internmentcamp #findyourpark #inyocounty #easternsierras
We experienced a rare, foggy morning at Manzanar the other day.
Dear Seattle! This is the last month my video, 'My shadow is a word writing itself across time' will be on view at 4culture. Whether it is the incarceration of Japanese Americans or the US war in Afghanistan, this 4-channel video retraces the shadows of injustices through a navigation of place and history. Hope you can check it out! Take a pic or video for me if you can :). Poetry written by @muradi.sahar
Former director of COPH and CSUF History professor emeritus, Dr. Arthur Hansen will discuss his new book at Manzanar National Historic Site on December 15 at 1pm. His talk will focus on the events surrounding the 1942 beating of Japanese American Citizens League leader Fred Tayama. #oralhistory #manzanar #csuf #history #japaneseamericans #fredtayama
The Dark Tower (7093) ~~~~~ For Human Rights Day, December 10th. A stark reminder of our dark past, guard tower No. 8 rises above Manzanar Camp. Reconstructed in 2005, it is one of the eight guard towers that surrounded the camp. 120,313 Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed to one of ten concentration camps during WWII. Manzanar in Owens Valley, CA, was one of these sites. I illuminated the tower with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the shutter was open on my tripod-mounted camera. I used a Pinout remote controller/app to set and trigger the camera.

As a reminder, our government under Republican leadership continues detaining children in spite of public disapproval and the repeated notation by psychiatrists on the long-term negative impact of incarceration on the mental health of the children. Our country. 2018. This is Seiko Ishida’s 3rd grade class from the 1944-1945 school year that shows the children in front of the barracks building that served as their school at the Manzanar War Relocation Center in California. Seiko Ishida was their teacher, earning $19 per week. She had been living at 35th and Western in Downtown Los Angeles at the time of the evacuation of Japanese Americans; her family origins were in Hiroshima Prefecture, and her parents had lived in Vancouver, on Bainbridge Island, and in Seattle, where she was born. She died in 2006, aged 96, in El Cajon.

Immigrant detention center. (Oil on canvas) 2018. I tried some things in this painting that I think are the direction I will be exploring (aesthetically) and (politically). After the first image are my entries to a class book about the canping trip we went on. My section is about Manzanar an internment camp for Japanese Americans during WW2. #ww2 #fineart #mfa #losangeles #art #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #canvas #detentioncenter #immigration #border #frontera #muro #wall #arte #pintura #manzanar #internmentcamp #whitewashing #history #poetry #poem #critique #flying #selfie at the end

Today is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, an event in history that I used to feel disconnected from. After spending the last two years studying the ripple effects from that attack, specifically for Japanese Americans, I understand better how important it is that we don't forget. That we don't let it happen again. #withintheselines #manzanar #manzanarnationalhistoricsite #neveragain #ushistory #japaneseamericanhistory #americanhistory #ww2history  #worldwar2 #blinkyabooks #bebravebebold #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #igreads #yabooks #bookworm #toread #ilovebooks #booknerdigans #bookish #booklover
Manzanar is a Japanese internment camp at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Owens Valley, California and was 1 of 10 Japanese internment camps where over 110,000 Japanese were unconstitutionally relocated and put to work between 1942 and 1945. Manzanar now serves as a museum dedicated to educating the country about this unfortunate moment in our nation’s history. Prisoners were allowed to play games such as baseball and basketball and the museum encourages visitors to play as well. . . . . . #nature #outdoors #beautiful #america #landscape #photography #hiking #beauty #manifestdu #adventure #natural #passion #expedition #freshair #gogreen #nationalparks #travel #traveling #exploring #backpacking #wwii #war #japan #manzanar #basketball #sierranevada
On December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a surprise attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor. After two hours of bombing, 18 U.S. ships were sunk or damaged, 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed, and 2,403 men were killed. We remember their lives and their sacrifices. #pearlharbor #oahu #hawaii #military #japan #japanese #America #ww2 🛩 🛥 Please don't forget Executive Order 9066. Tens of thousands of people from Japan living in America and anyone with Japanese ancestry were taken and placed into internment camps. They lost everything. I would have been taken to one. To add on, not a SINGLE act of treason was ever committed by a Japanese American. #internmentcamps #manzanar #treason #property #roosevelt #liberal #democrat #knowyourhistory
We took JFK MCJROTC Cadets to #manzanar today. 8hr drive yesterday and today..oops it’s now past midnight, so Wednesday and Thursday. It was worth it. #enrichment #mcjrotc #internmentcamp
History was never my forte nor my favorite subject in school. Last weekend I visited Manzanar, where over 100k Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II. From 1942-1945, these US citizens were forced from their homes and into camps as 'interns', violating their Constitutional rights out of fear. Many parts of US history, like this one, are overlooked and forgotten if it weren't for those who have courageously spoken up about their experiences. What an eye-opening & sobering experience. Let's make sure this never happens again to anyone anywhere. “Soul consoling tower”
Reserve a two or three day photo safari to the Eastern Sierras, including Manzanar Japanese Internment Camp and the Laws Railroad Museum and Historic Site. The #Manzanar #Japanese Internment Camp is along #Hwy395 , and was one of #Ansel Adams' #photo locations. The #Laws #Railroad #Museum is located on land donated to #Inyo County by the Southern #Pacific #Railroad when it shut down its narrow gauge railroad operations in the Owens Valley. The site is a #California Historical #Landmark #953 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum is operated by the #Bishop Museum and Historical Society, which has recreated an old time village around the original 1883 depot and Agent's House by moving old historic buildings onto the grounds from various locations in the #Eastern #Sierra #Nevada . Each building contains exhibits of historic artifacts from the area. The last steam train to operate on the old Narrow Gauge line is on display at the museum outside the depot. The locomotive, the "Slim Princess" is 100 years old as are most of the cars. The site was originally the Laws Station on the #Carson and #Colorado Railroad, which was the longest narrow gauge railroad in the west at one time way back then. In addition to the train car displays, the museum operates a restored 80+ year old historic rail-bus from the Death Valley Railroad, and a 60 year old+ mine train from a local tungsten mine for public rides on special occasions. Exhibits include old wagons, a replica mining mill, an old general store, local ranch house, old time fire equipment, and many other antique items. Museum entry: $5 donation per person

#Manzanar Commiittee To Host Book Signing Featuring New Book By Dr. Arthur Hansen About Manzanar "Riot," Resistance by Japanese American WWII Incarcerees... . The December 5-6, 1942 unrest or uprising at Manzanar, commonly known as the Manzanar “Riot,” is, arguably, the most significant event in the history of the notorious American #concentrationcamp , just one of the camps and other confinement sites in which more than 120,000 Japanese/Japanese Americans were unjustly incarcerated during #WorldWarII . . The Manzanar Committee will host a book reading/signing event featuring Dr. Arthur A. Hansen and his new book, “Voices: Oral History, Resistance and the World War II Japanese American Social Disaster," that looks at resistance in the camps as well as the unrest at Manzanar. The event will be held on January 6, 2019, at the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute (@gardenavalleyjci ). .

(Swipe) From 1942-1945 during WWII, 110,000 Japanese Americans were relocated into 10 internment camps throughout the U.S. Located in southeast California, Manzanar was the first to be established and held 10,000 internees, including entire families. Visiting the National Historic Site is a deeply moving experience that makes one reflect on our country's history and the horrors of war. Note: when Ansel Adams was allowed to document life inside Manzanar he was not allowed to photograph the guard tower like in photo 5. The final pic is a display of names of over 10,000 internees at Manzanar. . . #themoreyouknow #manzanar #nationalhistoricsite #nationalparks #weareparks #stunnersoninsta #travelphotography #yourshotphotographer #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #sonya6000 #sonyalpha #sonyimages #photography #goparks #history #education #artofvisuals #blackandwhitephotography

#memorial at the #japanese #internmentcamp at #manzanar near #lonepine #california ... Not trying to get too deep here, but I feel like the way it's set up, the museum, the buildings you can walk in, the ability to drive around the whole complex on a perimeter road, the interactive audio, the calm and serene atmosphere in and out of the buildings, and the HUMANIZATION - this is exactly what I was hoping for and exactly what it should be to remind the older, and to teach the younger. I respect the hell out of what has been done with this place. If you are in the area, definitely go. Much, MUCH love. -TM ... #ushistory #ww2 #wwiimemorial #japanesehistory #japaneseamerican #learnfromthepast
A little #fbf from the sierras a month ago. I’m not on the book of face because I tend to avoid politics but Manzanar is worth looking up and reading about, or better yet visiting. I’d suggest summer. Or dead of winter. #california #sierras #easternsierras #manzanar #hiking #roadtrip
Here are my great grandparents in-front of their bunker at #manzanar @manzanarcommittee the Nakano family. #knowyourhistory #knowyourheritage #japanese #japaneseamerican #WWII
Look at my beautiful Obachan!! I miss her so much it hurts! She was an amazing grandmother!! I will forever remember her telling me to grab her purse the moment my mom walked out the door to give us candy, the same exact way my mom does with my kids. I wish she was here. She passed way too young. #elegant #beautiful #grace #brave #japanese she faced a hard time in our American history during WWll she was in #manzanar #internmentcamp but looking at this picture you couldn’t tell if that broke her or not and I don’t know if it did. I was only 6 when she passed. But I do know she was brave!
