    Amazing. And read "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand to get an idea of how horrific conditions inside the Japanese camps were.

    Very well done, considering the conditions they had to work under!

    It's amazing enough that they were able to make a still camera, but a movie camera is incredible.
