part of speech: noun
definition: a special U.S. internment camp located near Moab, Utah, occupied in 1943 by American citizens of Japanese descent who had been deemed to be "trouble-makers" during their previous internment at ordinary camps created for the holding of Japanese-Americans during World War II. The conditions at the Moab Isolation Center were harsher than at other camps. At its peak, there were about fifty people being held there.
