Historical groups in Tracy and Brentwood are sponsoring the showing of a Japanese-produced film on the World War II prisoner-of-war interrogation center at Byron Hot Springs.
The hour-long film, called “Camp Tracy,” will be shown at 9 a.m. Nov. 16 at the Delta Theatre on First Street in Brentwood. A $5 donation is suggested.
The documentary film was produced by NHK Special, the Japanese equivalent of the Public Broadcasting System in the U.S., and was first shown on Japanese television in August 2007. It was filmed at Byron Hot Springs — located some 14 miles northwest of Tracy — San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
“Camp Tracy” reports on the interrogation of several thousand Japanese prisoners of war during World War II. Several hundred German POWs also were questioned there.
