Manzanar - Final Chapter

Posted by

Through the ages, man has brought brutality upon man. Revenge seems to have been the priority. Hatred the action.
Understanding and tolerance all but forgotten.

I know this series has been difficult, but it is a true chapter in the history of man, just as were the attacks, just as there were the holocaust. We can only try to do better before it is too late....Time may be running out

If you are interested in learning a bit more about the lives of camp survivors and their children who were born or grew uo in the camps, I highly recomment the below link which will guide you to the web page of a Bay Area (California) Emmy Award winning documentary that first aired on PBS in the1999. The documentary was directed by a dear friend of mine, television / film director, Media expert, artist, Musician and Poet, Mr Stephen D (Steve) Holsapple of Sacramento, CA.

A "follow-on"docu-drama was also made a few years later in 2003. It was titled, "From a Silk Cocoon".. also Co-Directed by Steve and Dr Satsuki Ina (the leading force behind both films and the entire effort) "From a Silk Cocoon" Also won a Bay Area (California) Emmy Award.
