    Ridden this famous Idaho Hwy 12 dozens of times and never knew this until this year. That Japanese and Italian WWII prisoners were used to help build this road through the Bitterroot Mountains and Lolo Motorway. Japanese interment prisoners were US citizens from California mostly that were imprisoned from 1941 thru 1944 after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Totally innocent victims.

    I was at Manzanar 2 months ago....facinating history...did not want to leave...but will definitely go back.

    Checked out Gila River camp several times (outside Phoenix, AZ), and accidentally found the Colorado Japanese Concentration Camp several years ago. Have a good friend from California who turned 91 this year. He was selling magazines on a street corner when he was 12 yrs old, when he was picked up to be loaded on a flatbed Army truck, he and family were housed in the Santa Ananeda Horse Race Track stalls for 2 weeks, then taken to a train station to be incarcerated for 3 years in Manzanar.

    The real slap in the face was when WWII had ended he still could not go home, was forced to move to Brooklyn NY for 2 years before being officially freed. Became a medical doctor. Told me last week at his birthday party on December the 7th ironically, that he was one of the last survivors, only around 50 to 100 of the 10,000 that were incarcerated are still surviving.

    Yet no bitterness
