Color silent amateur films by Dave Tatsuno (1913-2006), a businessman in the San Francisco Bay area. Composed largely of home movie clips, taken 1942-1945, of the environment the Japanese Americans lived in during World War II in forced exclusion at the Topaz concentration camp near Delta, Utah.

This segment, from 1945, shows footage of internees being processed for relocation from the Topaz concentration camp (00:48): a sign, "Relocation-Leave Office"; Japanese-language signs on the Relocation building; crowds milling among camp buildings; a school bus with luggage stacked on top; internees shaking hands and saying goodbye; the loaded school bus departs; those left behind wave from the camp fence.
