After the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941, roughly 110,000 Japanese-Americans were relocated to internment camps across the United States. Colorado Governor Ralph Carr fought to bring a camp to Colorado, where he felt its internees would be safe from harm. The Granada Relocation Center, more commonly known as Amache, held 7,567 internees - making it the tenth largest city in Colorado.
