Manzanar Japanese Relocation Site: Manzanar Trail Reviews

Definitely a must see if you’re ever near the area. Great information and actual barracks that were used to intern Japanese Americans, just because of the color of their skin. Artifacts and exhibits of how life was. Sobering to see the memorial of the ones that were buried there. You can even see the difference of how the Asians were living versus the foundations of the “white administration” that were “watching” them. You’d think we would’ve come a long way since then. But it doesn’t feel like much has changed, when you hear the recorded accounts of the survivors.
