About Minidoka National Historic Site:
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, forcing them into one of ten prison camps spread across the nation because of their ethnicity. The temporary, tar paper-covered barracks, the guard towers, and most of the barbed-wire fences of Minidoka are gone now, but the people who spent years of their lives in the centers will never forget them.
