July 29, 2014 - The Untold Story: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai‘i

Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai‘i

While the story of the 1942 mass round-up, eviction and imprisonment of Japanese Americans in California, Oregon and Washington has been well documented, very little is known about the Hawai'i internees and their unique experience during World War II.

Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park is proud to present a special screening of the documentary film, THE UNTOLD STORY: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai`i. This is the first full-length documentary to chronicle this event in Hawai'i's history. Join Carole Hayashino and filmmaker, Ryan Kawamoto for a special evening made possible by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai`i.
