Decades later, the people who had been kept in these camps are demanding that this denial of justice be acknowledged and taught by preservation of these sites, or, if not possible, markers at the sites. At this one, there has been significant damage to the original facility.

Fascinating! I drive past it practically daily and had no idea. My mom actually grew up in a neighborhood with people who spent time in the concentration camps - I wonder if any of them were processed through this facility. It makes reading "A Scent of Flowers" for the upcoming display at the library seem more interesting, though. (http://www.amazon.com/Scent-Flowers-Southern-California-1912--2004/dp/0974969702)

It took me by surprise when I heard the reports on KPCC this week; I just thought it fit my class assignment to use this.
