Basketball Court, Manzanar

Manzanar was one of 10 internment camps for Japanese-Americans and Japanese Immigrants from 1942 to 1945. In total 120,000 Japanese-Americans and Japanese immigrants were stripped of their rights and forced to live in these camps. Manzanar held 10,000. And when they asked why are their armed guards? They were told it is for your protection. Then they asked why are they facing us and pointing their rifles at us?
