Within 48 hours of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawai‘i authorities arrested several  hundred local Japanese on O‘ahu, Maui, Hawai‘i and Kaua‘i. In total, over 2,000 men and women of Japanese ancestry were arrested, detained and interned in Hawai‘i.
The Untold Story, produced by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i, is the first full-length documentary to chronicle this little known story in Hawai‘i’s history.
