After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, many of these Nisei were stuck in Japan, away from their families, with no ability to return to the U.S.\n</p>\n<p>\n <i>\n  Nisei Stories of Wartime Japan\n </i>\n tells the story of this group in more or less chronological fashion: their arrival in Japan (interviewees ranged in age of arrival from babies to young adults), their initial experiences as Nisei in Japan, the privations and dangers brought on by war and the difficult situations some found themselves in, their relatively privileged status during the U.S. occupation, and their eventual return to the U.S. Among the stories are those of Iwao Peter Sano, who was drafted into the Japanese army and ended up as a POW in the Soviet Union after the war; Harumi Befu, whose entire middle school was made to work in a munitions factory that was bombed almost daily; and the filmmakers' grandparents/in-laws (the filmmakers are a mother and son team), Shig and Chizuko Mazawa, who met and married in wartime Japan. The film consists almost entirely of the interviews, augmented with family photographs and film and images from newsreel and governmental sources. The filmmakers introduce various topics by using quotes from relevant books and reports.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\">\n <b>\n  Authored by\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n   Brian Niiya\n  </a>\n  , Densho\n </b>\n</div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n Niiya, Brian\n</div>\n<p>\n Might also like\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Mission in Manila: The Sakakida Story (film)\" title=\"Mission in Manila: The Sakakida Story (film)\">\n   Mission in Manila: The Sakakida Story\n  </a>\n </i>\n (1994);\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/From a Silk Cocoon (film)\" title=\"From a Silk Cocoon (film)\">\n   From a Silk Cocoon\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2005);\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Honor and Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story (film)\" title=\"Honor and Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story (film)\">\n   Honor &amp; Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2013)\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n <div class=\"section\" id=\"Related_Articles\">\n  <h2>\n   <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">\n    Related Articles\n   </span>\n  </h2>\n  <div class=\"section_content\">\n   <p>\n   </p>\n   <div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n    <div class=\"section\" id=\"\">\n     <h3>\n      <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\">\n      </span>\n     </h3>\n     <div class=\"section_content\">\n      <p>\n      </p>\n      <ul>\n       <li>\n        <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Documentary_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Documentary films/videos on incarceration\">\n         Documentary films/videos on incarceration\n        </a>\n       </li>\n      </ul>\n     </div>\n    </div>\n   </div>\n  </div>\n </div>\n</div>\n",
