Learn about the recent preservation work at the Amache Relocation Center in Granada, CO. Used from 1941-45 as a relocation center for Japanese Americans living on the West Coast, Amache tells an important story about the state’s past. Many families came to Denver when the center closed in 1945, including the family of guest speaker, Derek Okubo, whose family ran Ben’s Market in northeast Denver for years.
