|Part of the Gila River Relocation Camp (circa 1944)|
Students of History on the Move V will have the opportunity to visit the site of the Gila River Relocation camp between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. This particular camp was one of the largest in the system. Today little remains of the site and you have to know which desert roads to follow to locate it, but the power of this historic place, coupled with its isolated desert location, is thought provoking.
