Reflecting on WWII, Manzanar, and the WRA By Arthur L. Williams

When Manzanar War Relocation Center was opened, Art Williams was a Southern California teenager who moved with his parents, who worked for the War Relocation Authority, to Manzanar, an area where his grandparents had owned a farm.

Through autobiographical and historical information, Reflecting on WWII, Manzanar, and the WRA provides an overview of life in California both before and after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and of the administration of what became a virtual city, created and run by over 200 employees of the WRA. His personal perspective presents a unique picture of what it was like to live side by side with Japanese American incarcerees behind barbed wire.
