At 2:00 PM on Saturday, June 11, 2016, the Manzanar National Historic Site
will host The Topaz (Utah) Museum and Site
, a program about the Topaz concentration camp, that, like Manzanar, was a camp that held more than 11,000 Japanese Americans during World War II.
This special program, presented by Friends of Topaz board members Ann Tamaki Dion and author Kimi Kodani Hill, granddaughter of artist Chiura Obata, and author of Topaz Moon and Obata’s Yosemite, is about the new Topaz Museum in Delta, Utah, and the nearby Topaz site, a National Historic Landmark.
You can learn more about the Topaz Museum and site at http://www.topazmuseum.org. Kimi Kodani Hill’s books are available from the Manzanar History Association, http://www.manzanarstore.com.
