Two girls studying
 
DESCRIPTION
Two girls studying

Original caption: "On the wall in the background of this high school classroom at the Minidoka Relocation Center is a mural depciting center life. It was done by 11th grade students."
 
CONTEXT
"In our opening discussion, the students and I agreed that the whole evacuation process had been traumatic but could not last forever -- and we could not permit academic achievement to be interrupted. So, they arrived at class on time, with homework completed, worked diligently, took their exams, and otherwise observed normal classroom standards."
Eleanor Gerard Sekerak, A Teacher in Topaz
