than 120,000 Japanese Americans were interned behind barbed wire
during World War II...
half were children.
The Children of the Camps documentary captures the experiences
of six Americans of Japanese ancestry who were confined as innocent
children to internment camps by the U.S. government during World
War II. The film vividly portrays their personal journey to heal
the deep wounds they suffered from this experience.
