Smithsonian Exhibit On Japanese Internment Camps Features Idaho Artifacts

Jan 21, 2020


During World War II, tens of thousands of Japanese Americans were rounded up and held in camps around the country. One of those internment camps was in south central Idaho. The Minidoka camp housed folks from Washington, Oregon and Alaska. 

Now, a traveling exhibit curated by the Smithsonian museum in Washington D.C. will open to the public this Saturday, Jan. 25 in Boise. Idaho State Museum Director Liz Hobson joins Idaho Matters to talk more about the exhibit.
