Children of the Camps. Satsuki Ina. Children in the Camps is a powerful documentary that portrays the lingering personal impact of the World War II internment experience on Japanese Americans who were children during their imprisonment. This program provides a rare glimpse into the very private lives of Japanese Americans who typically have not talked openly about the humiliation and trauma of the internment experience. It is an emotionally riverting piece that tells a disturbing story of racism in America, while highlighting the incredibly enduring strengths and cultural resorces of the internees as they embark on a journey of healing (1999, 57 minutes).
