This exhibit documents a project to stabilize and restore the Rohwer Japanese American Relocation Center Cemetery. Funded in part by the National Park Service’s Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program, the project seeks to restore the headstones, flower holders, pathways, and monuments at this one of two Arkansas locations designated by Executive Order 9066 to intern Japanese Americans during World War II.
