English: The Jerome War Relocation Center (1942−1944) — formerly located near Jerome, in Drew County and Chicot County of southeastern Arkansas.
  • From 1942 to 1944 Jerome imprisoned Japanese American WWII internees, with a peak population was 8,497 people.
  • They were primarily from Los Angeles, Fresno, and Sacramento Counties in California, with some from Honolulu County in Hawaii, who had been processed through the Fresno Assembly Center or Santa Anita Assembly Center in California.
  • Jerome was open for the shortest time (634 days) of all the war relocation centers. When it closed in 1944, the internees were transferred to other relocation centers, with Rohwer War Relocation Center (Arkansas) receiving the highest number of people (2,734). [1][2]
