Red Sweater Vest

Description
Many incarcerated people were not prepared for the camps because of the quick “evacuation” process. One major problem was lack of appropriate clothing for the camp environment and for growing children. As a result many people made clothing for their families. This could have been the case for this hand-knit red sweater vest.
