In September, Helen Mori of Concord visited the national monument at the Manzanar War Relocation Center, located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. Manzanar was one of 10 internment camps that together housed 110,000 Japanese American men, women and children during World War II, and it was where Mori, herself, was relocated and lived for three-and-a-half years. She took a moment with the community news in the Concord Transcript, pausing at the cemetery. The last of the internees left Manzanar in 1945.
It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across the Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Transcript to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
