Developer's Description

Explore Minidoka National Historic Site with this official National Park Service app. Use it on your visit to this WWII Japanese American incarceration site to discover the stories and memories of daily life at Minidoka.In February 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order that moved nearly 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans into ten isolated relocation centers in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming. These temporary, tar paper-covered barracks, the guard towers, and most of the barbed-wire fences are gone now, but the people who spent years of their lives in the centers will never forget them. This is the story of one of those centers.The app follows Minidoka National Historic Site's 1.6 mile walking trail, enhancing interpretation of both current and historic structures and landscape with information about the daily operations and living conditions of the Minidoka War Relocation Center, known to locals as Hunt Camp. The app offers historic photographs as well as videos of former incarcerees sharing their memories associated with different areas of the camp.For best results visitors may wish to download the app over a wireless internet connection prior to their park visit, though park mobile connectivity and the small size of the app will accommodate on-site downloads as well.FeaturesMap: Navigate your way around the Minidoka National Historic Site with the GPS-enabled map of twenty points of interest.Sites: At each stop along the trail, learn the history behind the current landscape with text details of camp life, scroll through historic photographs, and view engaging oral history videos of people that experienced life at Minidoka first hand.Tour: Pull up each site on your own under the Sites tab, or take the parks suggested tour route for easily accessible navigation and interpretation of the park.More: Need directions to the site?
