LOS ANGELES — On December 1, 2012, the Friends of Manzanar sponsored Speaking Of Camp…, an event held at St. Francis Xavier Japanese Catholic Center (formerly Maryknoll/Japanese Catholic Center) in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo.

Co-sponsored by the Manzanar Committee, the event was part of an ongoing effort to capture the significance of individual stories of those who came through the World War II camp experience.

Videographers also recorded incarceree stories and memories of their days behind the barbed wire.
