Shadorma Style...Interment Camps

interment
camps have come before
and again
and again
isolate, confine, condemn
will we ever learn?

There have been many atrocities committed under the guise of war.  Interment Camps were one that many states hosted because of government orders and fear.

Arkansas had two such camps during World War II.  Jerome, AR - Opened October 6, 1942. Closed June 30, 1944. Peak population 8,497  Rohwer, AR - Opened September 18, 1942. Closed November 30, 1945. Peak population 8,475

There were others scattered through out the states.  
May it never happen again!

Absolutely so. We had a refresher course this weekend, for those that cared to show up.

There were several in California, tho I don't know the names or places. A neighbor down the street remembers he and his family living in one when he was very young. Rec'd reparations from the gov't: $25,000. Not quite enough.

Yes, many atrocities are committed under the guise of war,and continue to this day.

We must always remember others and work for the good of all.

All the best Jan
