"The internment of Americans of Japanese ancestry during WW II was one of the worst violations of civil rights in US history. The government and the US Army, citing "military necessity," locked up over 120,000 men, women, and children in 10 remote camps. These Americans were never convicted or even charged with any crime, yet were incarcerated for up to three years in prison camps surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards."
Near Delta, Utah, Topaz is one of these internment camps. More info can be found at: http://www.topazmuseum.org/
