Manzanar Free Press Japanese Pictorial Edition


From the outset of its publication, many Issei internees complained that the Manzanar Free Press was irrelevant to them since they could not read English. In July, 1942 a Japanese language edition was created with but had to pass a board of censors and could only carry translations of the English edition. Eventually the policy shifted and a four page Japanese language supplement published original material with striking Japanese calligraphy and original art work as shown in the Pictorial Edition.
