Granada Relocation Center, Amache, Colorado. There aren't any Christmas trees for the barracks room . . ., 12/24/1943

Original Caption: Granada Relocation Center, Amache, Colorado. There aren't any Christmas trees for the barracks room homes of these children in a Relocation Center. A Granada merchant, a former evacuee, provided each mess hall in the center with a tree, and so these children have made paper trimmings for the block community tree. Churches all over the country sent toys and gifts to the ten relocation centers, and some of these will be under this tree to make Christmas real for these children of Japanese ancestry.
