The story of Japanese-Canadians interned and relocated during WW2 as told through the eyes of one family, spanning four generations, who persevered and came home after more than 70 years to reclaim what was taken from them.
During the Second World War, the Canadian government detained and relocated more than 22,000 Japanese-Canadians in the name of national security. After the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese-Canadians were stripped of their homes, businesses and livelihood and sent to internment and work camps across the BC interior and Canada. The majority of these “enemy aliens” were Canadian citizens by birth.
This program tells the story of those who were relocated through the eyes of one family, spanning four generations, who persevered and came home after more than 70 years to reclaim what was taken from them during this dark chapter of our Canadian history.
