In celebration of Asian Pacific Heritage Month, Eyewitness News Anchor David Ono and ABC7 present "Witness - The Legacy of Heart Mountain" in prime time on Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 9 to 10 PM on KABC-TV Channel 7.

Heart Mountain is a spectacular and beautiful backdrop to a story of triumph and tragedy. Over seventy years ago, an internment camp filled with 10,000 Japanese Americans sat in the shadow of the mountain.

It was just a few miles outside Cody, Wyoming, where the land is rugged and the weather is brutal. It's where American citizens were imprisoned behind barbed wire and guard towers for no other reason than because of their heritage. Eight out of 10 were from Los Angeles.

Featuring the Southern California internees of this Japanese internment camp located in Heart Mountain,Wyoming during WWII, David Ono investigates what happened through one of the largest private photo collections taken there as well as talking with notables such as former U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, U.S. Senator Alan Simpson and Judge Lance Ito. He also goes on location to the actual site where an interpretive center has been built and he gives the viewer a first hand glimpse of what remains.

This fresh and beautifully photographed story by co-producers David Ono and Jeff MacIntyre have received great reviews from surviving internees as well as their children and grandchildren to understand what happened during this dark time in history.

The documentary has received a regional Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio Television Digital News Association and is competing for the national award in June.
