Cycle of Life
The natural cycles of courtship, marriage, births, and deaths continued inside the camps.
The outdoor funeral for 61-year-old Shinsuke Sugimoto, a Japanese resident alien who had spent 39 years in the United States. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, he was deemed an enemy alien and sent to a Department of Justice camp in Santa Fe. He was later transferred to the Amache camp, where he died in 1945.
