Klamath Falls, Ore. -- Over 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were placed in 'internment camps' during World War 2 and about 18,000 people were held at a high security camp just south of Tulelake.
Nearly 400 people are in the Klamath Basin this weekend for a pilgrimage.
Many are visiting the camp for the first time, to learn more about their history.
"My parents were through the internment - and it's fascinating because we didn't get to hear it first hand - so we go through experiences like this to hear the stories," said Bonnie Savage, who came from San Jose, CA.
The tulelake pilgrimages are held every other year, and feature a variety of tours and workshops.
The Ross Ragland Theater will host a related cultural program Sunday night at 7:30.
