Japanese internment camps barrack
I went to Heart Mountain to tear down some walls; now I gently embrace them.

I am a writer and filmmaker dedicated to sharing my ancestral history of the World War II incarceration of Americans of Japanese descent so that this dark chapter in American history be never forgotten nor repeated. My work is about discovery, reconciliation, and resistance. I want to discover what happened to my Japanese American family and others like them; to reconcile why my parents and others never spoke about it; and to be a voice of resistance to overcome the struggles they and others continue to face.

MOVING WALLS: The Barracks of America’s Concentration Camps

What struck me the first time I ever saw a barrack was that it was a storage shed. They were storing people.

You know whenever I need refreshment and feel kinda tired of life, or whenever I need comfort or to reduce a swelling head or lift my morale – I look at the stars. They also seem to have a silent rhythm like music. I wonder what they think? They were there when I came and they will be there when I leave. To them my life is microscopial — just a flicker in eternity.

OUT OF INFAMY: Michi Nishiura Weglyn

It is my sincere hope that this story of what happened only a generation ago may serve as a sobering reminder to us all that even Constitutions are not worth the parchment they are printed on unless vitalized by a sound and uncorrupted public opinion, and a leadership of integrity and compassion.
