16 Years Later: The Heart Mountain Barracks

In 1994, a group of volunteers and Museum staff traveled to Wyoming to recover fragments of two barracks buildings that housed Japanese Americans in the Heart Mountain camp during World War II. One of the buildings became the symbol of the unconstitutional mass incarceration, yet this project almost did not happen.
Hear from the many participants who contributed to this project, including former inmates, and what the Heart Mountain Barracks means to them today.
