    Event Description:

    The February program, “Kids Behind Barbed Wire,” will explore what growing up inside Heart Mountain was like. Being taken from their homes and sent to Heart Mountain was a confusing and frightening experience for Japanese American children. Despite great odds and cruel conditions children at HM found times and spaces to be children. With help from their friends and families, they coped with life in the camp by developing games and activities to make their childhoods as normal as possible. During this family-friendly program, attendees will see the camp from a child’s eyes, and even have a chance to try out some of the games and activities that kids at Heart Mountain took part in.
