Japanese-Americans Leave for Manzanar

Following FDR's Executive Order 9066, requiring Japanese-Americans to leave their homes for relocation elsewhere, this group of citizens boards a bus for Camp Manzanar.

Located in California, Manzanar would ultimately be "home" to thousands of displaced Japanese-Americans for the duration of World War II.

The Library of Congress maintains this photograph and provides this description:

Japanese-Americans transferring from train to bus at Lone Pine, California, bound for war relocation authority center at Manzanar.

It is believed that Clem Albers took this picture during April of 1942.
