This photo was taken at the Minidoka concentration camp's graveyard. The rocks in the background were probably used for grave markers. The tombstone shown here was more elaborate than most. This graveyard no longer exists. When the camps were closed, Japanese Americans often exhumed the remains of family members for reburial back home.
