Apparently, 144 people were sent to the camps.

I suspect some of them are still living in Palo Alto today...

Guess what? Families NEAR Palo Alto were interred, too. Doesn't that matter?

Interred - of course history matters. Every community and every family has their own stories about the internment and these stories need to be remembered. Please tell us your story about the internment.
