>" . . . Children of the Camps emerges as a truly insightful and evocative
>documentary on the Japanese American internment experience." Calvin Liu,
>AsianWeek
>
>“ . . . Remarkably intimate . . .  This title adds an important chapter to
>the story of World War II internment.”  Irene Wood, Booklist
>
>"[Children of the Camps is] about self-acknowledgment and coming to terms
>with ourselves and our history . . . and that if we can honor our history
>and come to grips with it, then we can guide ourselves not only in the
>present, but into the future. It's personal growth for myself . . . After
>this program . . . watch the spirit, watch the sentiment, watch the growth,
>and watch the healing."  Michael Honda, Assemblymember, 23rd District
>
>"The [Children of the Camps] value is in pointing out the injustice. It is
>a message worth repeating because it seems to be a lesson lost in today's
>world. Society continues to breed hate for the "other."" Nadine Kam,
>Features Editor, Honolulu Star-Bulletin
>
>"[Children of the Camps] is phenomenal and . . . very well done . . . [Dr.
>Satsuki Ina] did honor to so many who have been wronged. She gave a voice
>to their grief and their bravery."  Lee Mun Wah, Color of Fear
>
>“. . . This fine film . . . presents an interesting, seldom-seen aspect of
>the war and how it continues to affect us more than 50 years later.”
>Stephen L. Hupp, Urbana Univ. Lib., OH, Library Journal
>
>"I would like to salute your efforts of bringing to the Japanese American
>community the documentary film, Children of the Camps. It is vital that we
>continue to explore ther personal and familial consequences of the Japanese
>Americans interned during World War II. This film will serve as a valuable
>tool for many individuals wanting to confront and understand the trauma and
>stress associated with their internment experience." Hon. Robert T. Matsui,
>Member of Congress
>
>“ . . . The production values are excellent, the workshop participants and
>Dr. Ina are engaging, and the life experiences that are shared are
>compelling. . . Children of the Camps is an outstanding effort and is
>highly recommended.”  Scott Smith, Lorette Wilmot Library, NY, MC Journal:
>The Journal of Academic Media Librarianship
>
>“The video’s . . . compelling as survivors discuss painful memories, often
>clashing over their assessments of what it’s like to live in a country they
>feel has rejected them. . . . At video’s end, survivors liken themselves to
>the driftwood they find at the edge of the ocean; they have weathered the
>storms, and endured.”  Video Librarian
>
>
>"The tragedy of Japanese American internment during World War II is one of
>the most infamous chapters of American racism in the history of our
>country. The larger and indeed powerfully effective message of this project
>is that we must never again allow institutionalized racism to destroy the
>lives of our fellow citizens." Warren Robbin Ware, President, Sacramento
>Chapter, NAACP
>
