Story of 'enemy aliens' told through NCMA's internment camp exhibition
Snow Country Prison, a photographic exhibition of an internment camp for Germans and Japanese people arrested as enemy aliens during World War II, will be displayed at the North Country Museum of Arts in September.
In 1941, the U. S. Justice Department converted the Fort Lincoln, N.D. surplus military post into an internment camp.
Over its five-year operation as a camp, the Bismarck facility housed about 1,500 men of German nationality, and over 1,800 of Japanese ancestry.
