Within 48 hours after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, more than 2,000 men and women were arrested, detained and interned in Hawaii. Those arrested included Buddhist priests, Japanese language school officials, newspaper editors, business and community leaders. There is no evidence of espionage or sabotage and no charges were ever filed against them. This film chronicles their story through oral histories, documents, interviews ad reenactments.
“The Untold Story: Internment of Japanese American in Hawaii,” presented by the Japanese Cultural Society. Special one-time showing at 9 a.m. Saturday at Kaahumanu 6 Theaters.
