Amache Preservation Society Program and Sandra Dallas Book Talk
Feb 9, 2020
After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, all persons of Japanese extraction were ordered to be removed from the West Coast to internment camps further inland. In mid-February of 1942, Colorado officials were asked to survey the state for “appropriate” housing sites for Japanese evacuees. They settled on Granada in southeast Colorado.
Denver Woman’s Press Club (DWPC) will commemorate this event in the month it happened with Marge Taniwaki who represents the Amache Preservation Society, a volunteer group that maintains the camp site, museum and research center in Granada, and makes people aware of what happened 78 years ago so that it may never happen again. February 9, 2 - 4 p.m., with refreshments at the DWPC Clubhouse 1325 Logan St., Denver 80203. Admission: $18 members; $20 non-members. Register at dwpconline.org (http://dwpconline.org). Seating is limited.
