Digitized Japanese Internment Camp Yearbooks

Japanese Interment Camp Yearbook Scan

Aquila was a yearbook for Japanese-American high school students interned in a camp during World War II. The University of California has scans of two editions here.

This facinates me for several reasons: the banality of evil, maintaining traditions during unusual (to say the least) circumstances, and, of course, the capability of digital archives to reach users across time and space.
