|Minidoka Internment Camp Tour||
Time: 10:00 AMto 2:00 PM
Tour the Minidoka National Historic Site in Jerome County, site of a WWII Japanese-American concentration camp/relocation center. The Pearl Harbor attack intensified existing hostility towards Japanese Americans. As wartime hysteria mounted, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 forcing over 120,000 West Coast persons of Japanese ancestry (Nikkei) to leave their homes, jobs, and lives behind and move to one of ten Relocation Centers. This single largest forced relocation in U.S. history is Minidoka''s story. We will meet at CSI in front of the Security Building and then organize a caravan to Minidoka.
