From Barbed Wire to Barbed Hooks (You Tube)

The video opens with scenes of Pearl Harbor.

A man who was interned talks about the camp while photos are shown.

He was asking why they were placed there when they had done nothing wrong.

Another talks about the camp.

A guy talks about an area near a watch tower.

One guy would sneak out to go fishing. Another tells how the guards shot up the ground near where he was trying to sneak out.

They talk about how going fishing was worth taking the risk, proving they could be free, at least for a while, from the camp.

One woman talks about her father going fishing and says that, at those moments, a person felt totally free.

At those times, 'your mind was pure; there was no anger.'
