Biographical/Historical Note

The Rohwer Relocation Center in Desha County was one of two World War II–era incarceration camps built in the state to house Japanese Americans from the West Coast. The camp housed, along with the Jerome camp, some 16,000 Japanese Americans from September 18, 1942, to November 30, 1945, and was one of the last of ten such camps nationwide to close. The newspaper clipping dated December 2, 1945 in this collection describes the exit of the last Japanese-Americans out of the center.
