Love birds and hearts pin

Description
This pin was made in Rohwer Relocation Center in Arkansas. Crafts like this pin served to create or reinforce connections and relationships between people imprisoned at the camps. On the back of this pin, featuring two lovebirds perched on a heart, are the initials "HGK/45". Perhaps in 1945, someone gave this pin to their sweetheart as a token of love and affection.
