Kaneko Collection

Original WRA caption: When the children of the Isoda and the Kaneko families grow up, when Wayne Kaneko and Robin Isoda are old enough to go to grade school, they will attend the Congress School, District No. 1, on Milwaukee's north side. The school, shown in this picture, is but a few blocks from their home. Beginning in summer 1942, the War Relocation Authority (WRA) began to release incarcerees and encouraged them to resettle in areas of the United States other than the West Coast.
