Life Interrupted: The Experience of Japanese Americans in World War II Arkansas
The Public History Program of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, in a partnership with the Japanese American National Museum is researching and documenting the World War II War Relocation Authority Camps located in Southeast Arkansas. At their peaks, Rohwer and Jerome housed over 16,000 Japanese American citizens. This project will culminate in Little Rock in 2004 with several exhibits, a documentary, two-day symposium and reunion, and several educational components. The majority of the funding for this project is provided by the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation.
