This is a stunning monument and it is very tranquil at the cemetry especially with the beautiful mountain landscape in the backdrop.

The Manzanar Cemetry Monument was built by Master Stonemason Ryozo Kado.

Since 1969 the Manzanar Committee, a non-profit educational organization, has sponsored an annual pilgrimage to Manzanar. Former internees, their families, friends, and a growing number of young people gather at the Manzanar cemetery to remember, to honor, and to carry the lessons of this experience into the future. The event takes place on the last Saturday of April each year.
