Poston, AZ Japanese Internment Camp monument (0708)

Poston, AZ Japanese Internment Camp monument (0708)
A brief description of the internment, from 1942 to 1945, of 17,867 persons of Japanese ancestry at the Poston War Relocation Center (internment camp). From the center of the plaque:

“This memorial is dedicated to all those men, women and children who suffered countless hardships and indignities at the hands of a nation misguided by wartime hysteria, racial prejudice and fear. May it serve as a constant reminder of our past so that Americans in the future will never again be denied their constitutional rights and may the remembrance of that experience serve to advance the evolution of the human spirit”
