What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 37 in a series – “Farther in, you see the elms, most of which were planted by internees…”

September 6th, 2019

“What you see from the road are the two gatehouses, each a small empty pillbox of a building faced with flagstones and topped, like tiny pagodas, with shingled curving roofs. Farther in, you see the elms, most of which were planted by internees, and off to the right a large green building that was once our high school auditorium, now a maintenance depot for the Los Angeles Power and Water District, who leased the land to the government during the war and still owns it.”

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