A Place Called Rohwer

Twelve framed photographs, 11" X 14", can be hung or exhibited on easels. Must be picked up. 1978

Few people realize that during World War II, Rohwer and Jerome, Arkansas were sites for two Japanese-American incarceration camps. These twelve framed photos from the National Archives are testimony to a sad era in our history when Americans were sent to interment camps across the United State. Views of refugees with only a handful of belongings remind us that the usurpation of human rights was not confined to Europe during the war.
