CONTEXT
"At Rohwer, I was co-art editor of the paper, The Rohwer Outpost. The newspaper hoped to just tell the story of what's going on in the camp. There were mixed emotions because the staff had to satisfy the people who were interned and also those who were in charge of the camp.
So we went to work and worked on what we had to do, it's not real hard work, but we're only getting [nineteen dollars] per month, so we didn't have any incentive. That's one of the things that bothered us: we lost our incentive to do things, to accomplish things. But at least this paper kept me going. Doing something, anyway."
