Heart Mountain Smoke Stack Pinhole

Medical administration buildings at Heart Mountain internment camp site near Cody, Wyoming stand in ambiguous testament, as so many abandoned buildings in the west. Heart Mountain administered 10,767 internees at its peak. Frank Emi was a organizer of the Fair Play Committee which commenced the only organized constitutional challenge to the draft in the internment camps. August 2005

When I was a small girl, my friends were the sons and daughters of people who had been interned in the camps. I have memories of them. They are sweet and warm memories. Learning to use chopsticks from their grandparents. I spent five years living in Japan as an adult and felt at home as if I were a child in L.A. again.

Thank you for posting these pictures.
