May 1942 - March 1946

Tule Lake was one of ten American concentration camps established during World War II to incarcerate 110,000 persons of Japanese ancestry, of whom the majority were American citizens. Behind barbed wire and guard towers without charge, trial or establishment of guilt, these camps are reminders of how racism, economic and political exploitation and expediency can undermine the constitutional guarantees of United States citizens and aliens alike. May the injustices and humiliation suffered here never recur. California Registered Historical Landmark No. 850-2

I Saw The Marker

I took a photograph of the marker which shows its condition. I also took two photographs of the facility from outside the fence.
