What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 22 in a series – “Outside of school we had a recreation program…”

August 20th, 2019

“Outside of school we had a recreation program, with leaders hired by the War Relocation Authority. During the week they organized games and craft activities. On weekends we often took hikes beyond the fence. A series of picnic groups and camping sites had been built by internees—clearings, with tables, benches, and toilets. The first was about half a mile out, the farthest several miles into the Sierras. As restrictions gradually loosened, you could measure your liberty by how far they’d let you go—to Camp Three with a Caucasian, to Camp Three alone, to Camp Four with a Caucasian, to Camp Four alone.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
