Weddings

As in the outside world, Japanese Americans in the concentration camps held ceremonies such as weddings and funerals. Ministers from numerous denominations who visited or lived within the camps oversaw these rituals. As World War II progressed and some nisei joined the American forces in the Pacific and Europe, funerals for fallen soldiers became frequent in the camps.
