My Friends Behind Barbed Wire — 2007Produced by Stourwater Pictures for Washington State's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction
In the spring of 1942, Japanese Americans in Seattle were uprooted from their homes and incarcerated first at "Camp Harmony"
at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup and then in Minidoka, Idaho. As a young Caucasian child, and son of the pastor of the
Seattle Japanese Baptist Church, Brooks Andrews had a unique perspective on this horrific event. My Friends Behind Barbed Wire
reflects on the role Brooks' father played as he moved his family from Seattle to Minidoka.
