The visit by 14 students from South Heart School, Grade 7, South Heart, ND, was prompted by an historical novel. Their Instructor, Holly Holinka, said their reading of “The Fences Between Us” sparked an interest in seeing the site of a former internment camp. The young readers’ novel is set in 1941 in a War Relocation Authority camp in Utah. Holinka said the class was surprised and interested to learn there was an internment camp in North Dakota. During World War II, the current United Tribes campus was the site of Fort Lincoln Internment Camp.

      The South Heart students visited the TJES Grade 7 classroom, where together the classes viewed pictures of the Fort Lincoln camp and talked about the plotline of the novel. The classes went on a short walking tour of a portion of the former confinement area of the camp, and took lunch in the UTTC cafeteria.
