Roughly 10,000 Japanese Americans were sent to Manzanar War Relocation Center in eastern California, one of ten confinement camps set up in the wake of Executive Order 9066. Pete Merritt's father was the director of Manzanar War Relocation Center for much of its existence. This recording preserves Merritt's recollection of Manzanar, and was filmed on site.
