A new museum in the western state of Wyoming recalls life during World War 2 for thousands of ethnic Japanese held in camps. The museum is in the former Heart Mountain Relocation camp. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered almost 120,000 people held in camps soon after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Most of these people were ethnic Japanese-American citizens. Before World War 2 ended, United State court ruled that the camps were illegal. It was not until 1988 that then President Ronald Reagan apologized for the camps. He said the camps were a result of racial distrust and heightened feelings during war times.
