Minidoka: 80 Years of Unspoken Memories
Discover the experiences of East Multnomah County residents of Japanese ancestry during World War II, presented by local historian Gwenda McCall. Eighty years ago, eight hundred twenty-nine residents of East Multnomah County were rounded up and moved to Minidoka internment camp “for their own protection”. Two thirds were American citizens. Learn more about their daily lives in the camp and how they were treated when they returned.
