Lunch & Learn: Manzanar Closeup
December 5, 2023
Join us on December 5th at 12pm Pacific for the official launch of Densho’s newest digital platform!
An evolution of Densho’s popular Sites of Shame project, Manzanar CloseUp applies similar data extraction and visualization tools to offer a close-up view of Manzanar concentration camp. Users will be able to see geographical and population features of the camp with an unprecedented level of detail, including information about camp population down to the individual family and barrack level.
Densho Content Director Brian Niiya and Deputy Director Geoff Froh will walk through all the site’s features, show you how to use it to deepen your knowledge of WWII incarceration history, and discuss future plans for the CloseUp project.
This project was supported, in part, by funding provided by the California Civil Liberties program, administered by the California State Library.
