Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Members of the CSI Honors Program hosted the CSI Day of Remembrance.

The executive order signed by Franklin Roosevelt in 1942 forced removal and incarceration of all Japanese-Americans on the west coast of the United States.

More than one hundred and twenty thousand people were relocated to temporary incarceration facilities, including the Minidoka Relocation Center.

CSI historian Dr. Russ Tremayne gave a speech about the event to members of the community.

Students from his class went to the event and enjoyed his speech.

"He puts it in a way we can kind of relate, we can feel like these are real people," explains Andrea Logerson, CSI honor student.

The event was free to the community.

The presentation included historical and sociological perspectives of the order and incarceration, as well as informal discussion.
