Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance presents "Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams"
"Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams" features 50 photographs by Ansel Adams of the Japanese American internment camp in Manzanar, California, during World War II. These photographs were the subject of his controversial book, Born Free and Equal, published in 1944 while the war was still on, protesting the treatment of Japanese in the United States.
Densho’s mission is to preserve the testimonies of Japanese Americans who were unjustly incarcerated during World War II before their memories are extinguished. These irreplaceable firsthand accounts, coupled with historical images and teacher resources, promote the principles of democracy and promote equal justice for all.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit runs through August 14.
