Remembering Manzanar

Through the use of rare historic footage and photographs, and personal recollections of a dozen former internees and others, "Remembering Manzanar" explores the experiences of more than 10,000 Japanese Americans who were relocated to a remote desert facility during World War II. Created for use at the Interpretive Center at Manzanar National Historic Site, "Remembering Manzanar" gives viewers a sense of the place and its past, and a glimpse into a time when American citizens were exiled because of their ancestry.

The film is 22 minutes long and shows every half hour in the Interpretive Center.
