The following is an announcement from the National Park Service.
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.
This event is free and open to the public. Manzanar National Historic Site located at 5001 Highway 395, six miles south of Independence, nine miles north of Lone Pine, and approximately 230 miles northeast of Los Angeles (see map below).
