Italians share history of WW II internment camp | Local News Stories

There are no physical reminders of the old World War II-era internment camp that once existed in Sharp Park, but what it represented and the pain it caused those who were once locked inside was revealed during a presentation about the infamous site on Saturday clear.

The session was hosted by the women’s group of Le Donne d’Italia and chaired by Christina Olivolo. She’s a native Pacifician who, like many others who grew up in the area, had no idea that this country was once home to as many as 2,500 immigrants of Italian, Japanese, and German descent.
