Parks preserving internment camps


news.yahoo.com

GRANADA, Colo. - Bob Fuchigami was 12 years old when he and his family were told to leave their 20-acre farm in northern California. The peach trees that his immigrant parents had planted were about to yield their first big crop.

Fuchigami and his parents and siblings were among more than 100,000 Japanese-Americans ordered to report to internment camps. The Fuchigamis ended up at one in dusty southeastern Colorado.

A good piece on how the Parks Service is going to the original detainees to find ways to preserve the history of the camps. Fuchigami wound up in a Colorado Internment Camp (Amache) for three years with his parents and later went on to serve in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War.

Good read.
