Carol Ash, chief of interpretation and education for the National Park Service (NPS) at Camp Minidoka, discusses recent actions by the NPS to make Camp Minidoka a National Historic Site. She also describes additional government actions in an ongoing attempt to seek justice for the action of interning Japanese Americans during World War II.

The Seeking Justice Project focuses on the events and aftermath of the forced internment of thousands of Japanese Americans during World War II. Many of the Japanese Americans who lived in the Northwest were forced to leave behind homes, businesses, and property and were relocated to Camp Minidoka, an internment camp near Twin Falls, Idaho.
