Annotation On Feb. 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing U.S. armed forces to remove citizens and non-citizens from "military areas." The result was the abrupt dislocation and imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese American citizens in the western U.S. In Minidoka: An American Concentration Camp, photographer Teresa Tamura documents one of 10 such camps, the Minidoka War Relocation Center in Jerome County Idaho, and its survivors, all uprooted from their homes in Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California. She also documents many artifacts that were made in the camps. Her book comprises 180 black and white photographs supplemented by essays and interviews that fuse present and past.
