44th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage: In Photographs

Photo: Gann Matsuda/Manzanar Committee

A few days have passed since the 44th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage, and the 2013 Manzanar At Dusk program, held last Saturday, April 27, 2013. Members of the Manzanar Committee returned to Southern California on Sunday after a lot of hard work, especially in the days just prior to the events, and of course, on Saturday.

By all accounts, this year’s Pilgrimage was a huge success. The numbers aren’t in yet, but initial estimates put the crowd anywhere from 1,400 to 1,700 people.

We’ll have more on the Pilgrimage and the Manzanar At Dusk program in the coming days and weeks. But for now, here is our first photo essay on the Pilgrimage (photos from the 2013 Manzanar At Dusk program will be published separately).

Please note that due to technical problems, only a small handful of photos from the interfaith service are available in this photo essay. Specifically, photos of the Buddhist portion of the ceremony, along with the flower offering, are not available. We expect to have photos of the entire interfaith service from other photographers in the coming weeks.

Also included are photos from the plaque dedication ceremony on Sunday, April 28, honoring the members of the Manzanar National Historic Site Advisory Commission, who served from 1994 through 2002 (the legislation creating Manzanar National Historic Site authorized the advisory commission in 1992, but it did not get off the ground until late 1994).
