The following is a press release from the Hill 555 Project. Publication does not constitute an endorsement by the Manzanar Committee.
SACRAMENTO, CA — In 2011, during a visit to Bruyères, France, it was discovered that the simple monument to the Nisei liberators was in need of restoration. For five years, numerous efforts were made to obtain approval to rehabilitate and augment the 1947 monument located on Hill 555 near the city.
In 2016, Mayor Yves Bonjean and City Council approved the project and now are committed to its completion by October 2017. At that time, the City of Bruyères plans to rededicate the site to the Nisei heroes of October 1944.
