WWII Japanese-American internment site in Colorado studied for NP status

DENVER, March 25 (UPI) -- The U.S. National Park Service is considering creating a national park from an abandoned internment camp on the southeastern plains of Colorado that once held Japanese residents during World War II.


For more than 40 years, former detainees and descendants of people of Japanese ancestry have made pilgrimage visits to the Granada, Colo., site of the former Amache internment camp, which has been maintained by a local social studies teacher and his students.
