Nisei babies in concentration camp
[ bio ]
Gift of Madeleine Sugimoto and Naomi Tagawa, Japanese American National Museum
Stretched and framed.
Five faceless black haired babies in diapers on white sheet; one stands, holding up small American flag in right hand; one seated behind him salutes. A soldier in tan uniform and black MP arm band carries a rifle with bayonet in left foreground. A barbed-wire fence separates him from and surrounds the babies. A guard tower stands next to a bare tree in right background under a dark sky.
