Our Lost Years

Our Lost Years

The Nisei Veterans Memorial Center, Central Pacific Bank Foundation and Maui Sons and Daughters of the Nisei Veterans proudly presents…Our Lost Years.


A new American film written and directed by Lane Nishikawa



Our Lost Years examines how lives were challenged, how livelihoods were lost, how families persevered and started over, and how the following generations continue to feel the effect of the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. In total 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were interned during WWII.
