A Day in the Life - August 21, 1943
Each of the ten concentration camps run by the War Relocation Authority had a newspaper that was edited by the prisoners, naturally under government supervision. These papers give us a glimpse -- although just a partial one -- of life in the camps.
This episode of Scapegoat Cities relies on the newspapers for Saturday, August 21, 1943 -- a day I chose at random -- to present a sketch of daily camp life.
Pour yourself a bowl of Post Toasties and give a listen.
