Behind Barbed Wire

Japanese Americans who were interned at Camp Minidoka in Idaho will provide a look behind the barbed wire during a series of programs that will be presented at Linfield and in McMinnville beginning Oct. 30. The Seeking Justice Project focuses on the events and aftermath of the forced internment of thousands of Japanese Americans during World War II. Many of the Japanese Americans who lived in the Northwest were forced to leave behind homes, businesses and property and were relocated to Camp Minidoka, an internment camp near Twin Falls, Idaho. This series of programs will feature individuals who were interned, a program on the National Park Service's action to make Camp Minidoka a National Historic Site, a theatrical drama focusing on the experiences of those interned, and a forum on immigration issues. The program includes four presentations: "Behind Barbed Wire" will feature Yosh Nakagawa, Herb Tsuchiya and Lilly Kodama telling the stories of their experiences when they were interned at Camp Minidoka.
