A Bitter Legacy

Synopsis: 

This feature documentary investigates the 'Citizen Isolation Centers', the secret World War II prisons within the Japanese American Incarceration system which were created by the US Government in 1943 to separate those citizens deemed to be 'troublemakers', from the other prisoners of Japanese descent. These secret prisons have been called 'precursors to Guantanamo'.
