Paul DePrey with the National Park Service and JCCH President and Executive Director Carole Hayashino stand in what was once the mess hall at Honouliuli Internment Camp.

Congress may soon designate Hawaii’s first national monument or historic site. It’s Honouliuli, an internment camp that held hundreds of Japanese Americans during World War II.

Carole Hayashino is the President and Executive Director of the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii. She has a very personal connection to this piece of history.

Tomorrow, we'll take you on a tour of the Honouliuli site, and explain how this piece of local history was almost lost.
