Topaz Photo Walk

A picture is worth a thousand words. Guiding students through a photo walk of Topaz Internment Camp is probably the best way for them to even begin to understand what happened there during this dark time.

The Utah State Historical Society has hundreds of photos of Topaz camp, many of which are taken from prior to the evacuation and families boarding up their houses and businesses, to boarding trains headed towards Topaz and camp life during the internment. I’ve created a small power point that includes only some of the photos and descriptions found in the online archives of U.S.H.S. I’ve also included a guide that explains each slide.
