Art Williams and Fred Causey are not Japanese Americans, yet they spent World War II at the Manzanar internment camp as children. Both of their fathers were employees of the War Relocation Authority (WRA).

Williams and Causey return to Manzanar on Oct. 10-11, to share with visitors their unique experiences as Caucasian kids in a camp for Japanese Americans.

On Saturday, Williams Causey will lead a walk around the camp's administrative area discovering and sharing childhood memories.

Participants should meet in the lobby of the Interpretive Center. Wear sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and take water to drink.

For the remainder of Saturday afternoon, as well as all of Sunday, Causey and Williams will be in the Manzanar Interpretive Center to share engaging stories from the camp.

Visitors are invited to ask questions and hear their reminiscences in an informal setting with these two children of Manzanar.

These programs are free and open to the public. The center is located at 5001 Highway 395, six miles south of Independence, Calif.
