 The director of two films about the interment of Japanese-Americans in the 1940s talks with Jan Haaken.  He is John Esaki, and the films are  "Stand Up For Justice", a drama  about a man who accompanies  his Japanese-American friends  to the camp; and "From 9066 to 9/11," a  documentary  that compares President Roosevelt's  executive  order  9066 authorizing the internments to US treatment of  Arab Americans and  residents  after  9/11.  They are both being shown at Willamette University for a Day of Remembrance  on Monday, February 18.  Details are here.
