Historians Gary Okihiro and Gail Y. Okawa talk about the surveillance of the Japanese community in Hawai'i prior to the war, which led to the preparation of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Custodial_detention_/_A-B-C_list\" title=\"Custodial detention / A-B-C list\">custodial detention lists</a> that allowed authorities to begin arresting Japanese American community leaders right after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Those arrests and the subsequent detention at <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Sand_Island_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Sand Island (detention facility)\">Sand Island</a> and other camps are recalled by surviving internee Urata, family members of Nishimura, Osumi, and Nishioka, and through the writings of Soga and Ozaki. Given the dearth of visual depictions of the arrests and internment, filmmaker Ryan Kawamoto used dramatic reenactments of Soga's Ozaki's, Nishimura's and Urata's experiences to illustrate the experience including their purposefully degrading treatment at Sand Island, their kangaroo court-like hearings at the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Honolulu_Immigration_Station_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Honolulu Immigration Station (detention facility)\">Honolulu Immigration Station</a>, and the tedium of internment.\n</p><p>The film then turns to the transfer of Issei internees to camps on the continental U.S., particularly <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Santa_Fe_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Santa Fe (detention facility)\">Santa Fe</a>, and the transfer of the rest to <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Honouliuli_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Honouliuli (detention facility)\">Honouliuli</a> in 1943. The experience at Honouliuli is recalled by Urata and another surviving internee, Jack Tasaka, along with Nishimura family members and German American Doris Berg Nye, whose parents were also held there. Urata and Shizuye Nishioka (Bob's wife) recall <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Tule_Lake\" title=\"Tule Lake\">Tule Lake</a>, where the two men were transferred to from Honouliuli. Nishimura was released before the end of the war, the other after, and the film briefly updates the fate of each internee.\n</p><p>After a brief summary of the postwar silence about the internment in Hawai'i and the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Redress_movement\" title=\"Redress movement\">Redress Movement</a> of the 1980s—including the discovery in Hawai'i of those who were excluded from their homes, but not interned—the last quarter of the film turns to contemporary efforts to recover the Honouliuli site. Footage of pilgrimages to Honouliuli organized by JCCH in 2008 and 2010 and of archeological surveys of the site led by Jeff Burton and Mary Farrell highlight this segment. Family members, scholars, and community members emphasize the importance of preserving the site and making the story of the internment known.\n</p><p><i>The Untold Story</i> was part of a series of activities by JCCH to educate the public about the internment, including the publication of internment memoirs by Issei internees Soga, Ozaki, and Kumaji Furuya, exhibitions, and pilgrimages. It was funded in large part by a grant from the Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program, with smaller grants from the Island Insurance Foundation, Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Japanese_American_Citizens_League\" title=\"Japanese American Citizens League\">Japanese American Citizens League</a>, Honolulu Chapter. <i>The Untold Story</i> was preceded by another short film, <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Honouliuli:_Hawai%27i%27s_Hidden_Internment_Camp_(film)\" title=\"Honouliuli: Hawai'i's Hidden Internment Camp (film)\">Honouliuli: Hawai'i's Hidden Internment Camp</a></i> (2010) which used some of the same footage. A thirty-minute education version of <i>The Untold Story</i> was also made and is available online through JCCH's internment website.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"http://encyclopedia.densho.org/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>Official website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://hawaiiinternment.org/untold-story/untold-story\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://hawaiiinternment.org/untold-story/untold-story</a>.\n</p><p>Kurahara, Jane, Brian Niiya, and Betsy Young. \"Finding Honouliuli: The Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i and Preserving the Hawai'i Internment Story.\" <i>Social Process in Hawai'i</i> (2014): 16–42.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.116 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.117 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 366/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2583/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 10608/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 4597/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:3165-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20170917074109 and revision id 26837\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
