Description
This photograph is of a man holding a baby in camp. Most likely the camp is Rowher because "Arkansas" is on the back of the photo. The baby is holding a small stuffed animal, and they are posing in front of the bare barracks of Rowher. Many children were born and grew up in these prison camps, and their innocence is a sharp contrast to the camps they were born in.
