Missoula Public Library, Large Meeting Room Brown Bag Luncheon, Film. April Brown Bag lunch series will feature a one-hour documentary entitled "Children of the Camps: A Journey of Courage, Discover and Healing" produced by Dr. Satsuki Ina - who herself was born in one of the many internment camps that imprisoned Japanese-American citizens during WWII.  The film portrays the familial and personal impact of the incarceration of children, as well as the impact of racism when they re-entered their communities.  Their stories are emotionally riveting, and due to language at one point, not appropriate for children who are younger than 14.  Camp inmates were innocent of crimes and held without due process.  In 1988, the U.S. government completed an investigation and adopted legislation that formally apologized for the internment, authorized a payment of $20,000 to each camp survivor, and admitted that government actions were based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership".
