Category: Arkansas physical, cultural and historic features
Feature Type: Cultural
Class: Cemetery
Description: National Historic Landmark
History: Rohwer Relocation Camp was constructed in the late summer and early fall of 1942 as a result of Executive Order 9066 (February 16, 1942). Under this order, over 110,000 Japanese aliens and Japan-Americans were relocated from the three Pacific Coast States--California, Oregon, and Washington. In all, ten relocation camps were established in desolate sites, all chosen for their distance from the Pacific Coast. Over 10,000 evacuees passed through Rohwer during its existence, and over two thirds of these were American citizens. The monuments found within the camp's cemetery are perhaps the most poignant record of this time.
