Tokyo Podcast 19: Prisoners & Patriots

During World War II the United States government detained over 100,000 people of Japanese descent in interment camps throughout the west coast of the United States. One particular camp located in Santa Fe, New Mexico was different. It housed Japanese men who were considered the worst of the worst by the United States government. Many of these men were journalists, teachers, ministers or businessmen and until today their story has never been told.

Neil Simon is a documentary filmmaker who’s film ‘Prisoners and Patriots: The Untold Story of Japanese Internment in Santa Fe’ hopes to bring awareness to the camp in Santa Fe and this untold story from World War II.
