WWII camp to get barrack back

Los Angeles Times - - THE NATION -

One of the orig­i­nal 450 bar­racks at the Heart Moun­tain Re­lo­ca­tion Cen­ter will be re­turned to the for­mer World War II in­tern­ment camp this sum­mer.

The his­toric barrack was dis­cov­ered near Shell, where it had been moved and was used by Iowa State Univer­sity at its ge­ol­ogy field stud­ies sta­tion, said Brian Liesinger, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Heart Moun­tain In­ter- pre­tive Cen­ter.

The cen­ter is a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark, but no bar­racks re­main on the site. Dur­ing the war, more than 11,000 Ja­panese Amer­i­cans from the West Coast were held there.
