Qs & As at Temple University
On October 17th, Temple University's Japan Campus Institute of Contemporary Japanese Studies hosted the seven visiting American former POWs of Japan. The video below is of the Qs & As. They speak from their heart about their mixed feelings about returning to Japan. One daughter talks about how she protects her father from reading books about the POW experience. They also recommend the forthcoming documentary The Tragedy of Bataan about the infamous Bataan Death March. Listeners are astounded at the incredibly horrendous conditions in the POW camps.
