Japanese children play in front of barracks used as living quarters at Camp Amache in Prowers County. During World War II, three Japanese sisters known as the "Nisei Sisters" were briefly detained at the relocation center before they were sent to an onion farm near Trinidad, where they helped German POWs escape. The sisters were later tried for treason.
