Color silent amateur footage of activities at Heart Mountain concentration camp, Wyoming, filmed by Reverend Stanley T. Evans, who visited Rev. Donald Toriumi at Heart Mountain in 1945. Composed of home movie clips of the environment the Japanese Americans lived in during World War II in forced exclusion.

This brief segment (00:25) shows camp buildings and the landscape around Heart Mountain; rows of barracks with a Japanese lantern; and laundry hanging in the breeze.
