Journey to an Internment Camp
By Michael Havey
Salt Lake City, UT – Tomorrow at the Topaz Internment Site, there will be a ceremony to recognize its designation as a National Historic Landmark. It's one of ten camps that were constructed throughout the United States.
KUER's operations manager Michael Havey is half-Japanese a third generation Japanese American whose family was interned for three years during World War II in the Amache Camp in Colorado. In 1998 just after the death of his grandmother, he journeyed with his mother to the camp- seeking to understand his connection to this place and to say goodbye.
