The Minidoka Interlude
, 1943

Minidoka was run like a military post. You are standing in its warehouse area. A lumber yard and 17 warehouse buildings were located here. The buildings were used for storage, maintenance, and sign making.

With over 9,000 internees, plus the civilian WRA staff who oversaw the camp's operation, large quantities of food, parts, building materials, tools, work clothes, and cleaning supplies were kept here.

On November 11, 1942, a special moment arrived in the warehouse area. (Illegible),000 Japanese books, many art prints, and various personal items-all confiscated from internees when imprisoned at the Camp Harmony and Portland assembly centers-were returned to residents.

Internees turned one warehouse into a shop classroom, where they learned job skills like auto repair, farm equipment repair, welding, and carpentry.
