Japanese-American Internment - MINIDOKA

After he was forced to relocate to the Minidoka "Relocation Center" in Idaho, Sokichi Hoshide used his watch-repair skills to head the camp's watch-repair shop. Francis Stewart took this picture, at Minidoka, on the 10th of December, 1942. It is online via the U.S. National Archives (ARC identifier number 536542.) Public Domain.


Less well known than some of the other internment camps, Minidoka was located in an area of farms in southern Idaho.

Tule Lake, in northern California, became one of the most notorious internment camps of all. Ethnic Japanese, considered disloyal to the United States, were rounded up and sent to Tule Lake. Not surprisingly, there was unrest in the camp.
