Color silent amateur footage of life in the World War II Japanese American detention facility in Tule Lake, California, made 1942-1945 by teacher Charles Palmerlee.

This segment opens with a series of title cards and graphics: 1) "Assignment in Tule Lake", with graphics of Mt. Fuji, birds, and a Japanese sailboat; 2) "Life behind the barbed wire fence of a relocation center", with graphics of a guard tower and a figure kneeling to tend a plant; 3) "Filmed by.. Charles Palmerlee 1943", with graphics of a cloud over a barrack, and a movie camera on a tripod. Footage shows a mountaintop view over the Klamath Valley and the Tule Lake Relocation Center; views within the camp of buildings and nearby hills; rooftop views of camp barracks and office buildings; and sunset behind a guard tower (03:10).
