Bookmark, "Rohwer Relocation Center 1944"

Description
This bookmark was likely created in the arts and crafts classes offered at most of the War Relocation Centers. On the back of the bookmark "Julia Nitta" was written in ink. Perhaps Julia made this bookmark to use in her books or it could have been given to her as a present from a fellow internee.
