This annual event sees former incarcerees and their descendants return to the site where they were unjustly imprisoned during World War II for a weekend of recollecting, processing, and of opening up new dialogues.  This event not only brings former incarcerees back, but provides an opportunity for locals to engage with this group of people, and to learn more about this tragic story.  Activities include film screenings, educational sessions, multi-generational discussions, speakers, performers, and tours around the national historic landmark site with former incarcerees who were confined at Heart Mountain during the war. For more history, please visit their website: www.heartmountain.org.
