Manzanar was only one of ten internment camps, or War Relocation Centers. In addition, Japanese Americans were housed in temporary Assembly Centers, Department of Justice camps, and other facilities. The maps here show the wide ranging locations of these sites.

Ansel Adams photographed the camp and in 1944 published a book. It was poorly received and sparked protests at the time. The book, Born Free and Equal, has recently been republished.
