On episode 76, we travel to the Manzanar National Historic Site. This is a part 2 to our prior podcast where we took you to Lone Pine California.
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 the US government incarcerated Japanese immigrants ineligible for citizenship and Japanese American citizens during World War II.
Today, Manzanar National Historic Site provides an opportunity to learn about the experience of over 10,000 Japanese Americans who spent all or part of World War II at Manzanar.
Among the highlights on this episode, we’ll take you through what we see and our impressions in both the visitor center (actually more of a museum). We also spent many hours on the grounds visiting each of the stops that are available for visitors.
