At Manzanar, one of ten World War II relocation centers, historic erasure is failing. After the war, many of the camps buildings were removed and relocated throughout the Owens Valley an inversion of the way in which 10,000 Japanese-Americans had been removed from their homes and concentrated at this camp. Many of these buildings remain in the communities, though their origins may now be forgotten. Each of the buildings is an architectural face that speaks of the assimilation of this dark side of the American story. This richly illustrated publication is a groundbreaking and essential component to the understanding of our own history. Forward by Matthew Coolidge.
