While the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII has been well documented on the U.S. Mainland, new information about the sites and untold stories continue to emerge from Japanese Americans in Hawai‘i who endured this dark chapter of history. VOICES BEHIND BARBED WIRE is a series of four short films that explore the personal stories of Japanese Americans living on O‘ahu, Maui County, Kaua’i and Hawaii Island. Each episode chronicles the initial detention of Japanese Americans on each island, to their transfer and interrogation at the U.S. Immigration Station and their incarceration at Sand Island, Honouliuli and in far away places like New Mexico, Arkansas and Arizona. The films also includes updated information on the Honouliuli National Monument with a focus on the modern day relevance of civil liberties and an archeological journey through the former World War II prison sites on O’ahu.
Produced by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai’i, VOICES BEHIND BARBED WIRE is directed by Ryan Kawamoto and was funded, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program.
