Heart Mountain National Historic Landmark

I was today years old, minus a couple of years, when I learned that Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from the homes and kept in camps during World War II.  Chalk it up to me being a slow reader in high school and finding history incredibly boring or that it wasn’t taught.  I don’t know which, but ever since I learned about this injustice, I wondered where the camps, known as “relocation centers” were.  One, was located in northern Wyoming and is now the Heart Mountain National Historic Landmark.
