The Tule Lake National Monument Japanese American Confinement Site protects a highly significant area and is the largest of ten concentration camps that imprisoned Japanese Americans during World War II. The monument serves as a reminder of this dark period in our nation’s history when more than 120,000 people were forced to leave their homes because of their ancestry. Today, visitors can explore the site to learn about the Japanese American experience during the war, including what life was like in the camp and how people were affected by their forced relocation. The monument is also a place of remembrance and healing, honoring those who suffered through this challenging period of our history. Through educational programs and events, visitors can learn more about the legacy of Tule Lake and its importance to the Japanese American community. In addition, the site provides a unique opportunity for visitors to connect with nature, explore the nearby wetlands and observe wildlife that call Tule Lake home.
Visiting this nationally significant site is not only an important reminder of our past, but also an inspiring look into how we can work together to create a more just and equitable society for all.
