Documentary Chronicles OWWCC’s 2012 Delegation to Manzanar




What They Could Carry…Return to Manzanar” tells the story of the Only What We Can Carry Delegation to Manzanar in 2012. The short documentary was filmed and produced by videographer and former EduCulture Board Member Brenda Berry and her colleague Scott Rouse.

The documentary features OWWCC’s 4th delegation of former internees and current Island educators and community leaders, who together retraced the historic 1942 forced relocation of the Bainbridge Island Japanese Community to the former Manzanar Relocation Center, in Independence, California.

This wonderfully filmed, 13-minute video brings the visit to life and tells some of the personal stories of those impacted by this historical event.  We are so grateful to Brenda and Scott for their excellent work and tremendous contribution to preserving the valuable stories from these journeys of bearing witness and discovery.
