Colorado Experience: Amache (full length)

In the wake of the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941, roughly 110,000 Japanese Americans were relocated to internment camps across the United States as part of Executive Order 9066. Colorado Governor Ralph Carr, going against popular anti-Japanese sentiment, fought to bring a camp to Colorado, where he felt its internees would be safe from harm. In August 1942, the Granada Relocation Center, more commonly known as Amache, received its first “evacuees,” mostly arriving by train from the California Coast. At its peak, Amache held 7,567 internees—making it the tenth largest city in Colorado. This episode of Colorado Experience brings you the story of Amache through the eyes of those who lived it, offering a seldom-seen chapter in America’s wartime history.For more episodes, please visit www.rmpbs.org/coloradoexperience
