CSU Dominguez Hills Hiroshi Fukuwa Manzanar Diary

One diary written by Hiroshi Fukuwa, a Kibei Nisei of Los Angeles, California. His diary starts from his departing day from Los Angeles to move into the Manzanar incarceration camp as one of the first group of volunteer incacerees. He was transferred to the Gila River camp, Arizona, to join his brother's family, and segregated into the Tule Lake camp in California, later. It details his experiences during his incarceration in the three camps, Manzanar, Gila River, and Tule Lake. Descriptions include trips to the camps, living conditions, jobs, events, and incidents, reflecting a Kibei's perspective. The diary was written after he was incarcerated in the Gila River camp in Arizona. English translation is found in item: csudh_hrs_0002.
