The Honouliuli Internment Camp was Hawaii’s largest and longest-operating internment camp, opening in 1943 and closing in 1946. The camp, near Waipahu, held 320 internees and also became the largest prisoner-of-war camp in Hawaii with nearly 4,000 prisoners. The site was designated as Honouliuli National Monument on Feb. 19, 2015, by President Barack Obama.
