America's newest national park honors the 'sad chapter' in history 

Amache National Historic Site, one of 10 Japanese incarceration camps, is designated as a national park in southeastern Colorado.

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland formalized the establishment after the Town of Granada donated the land. 

President Biden signed the Amache National Historic Site Act in March 2022, placing it under the National Park System. 

The site aims to educate future generations about Japanese American mass incarceration during World War II. 

Secretary Haaland emphasizes the importance of acknowledging past wrongs for a just and equitable future. 

The announcement precedes the Day of Remembrance of Japanese Incarceration on Feb. 19. 

Amache joins other internment camp sites like Minidoka, Manzanar, and Tule Lake as national parks preserving this history. 

Formerly known as the Granada Relocation Center, Amache housed over 10,000 people between 1942 and 1945, reaching a peak population of 7,310 in 1943.
