'Hawaii Five-O' recreates internment camp for show

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The creators of the CBS drama "Hawaii Five-O" recently rebuilt an Oahu internment camp used during World War II to detain Japanese, German and Italian internees and prisoners of war shipped to the islands.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the plot involves an elderly Japanese man who seeks revenge for a murder he witnessed at Honouliuli Internment Camp with his family in 1943.

Steve McGarrett's "Five-0" team investigates the crime as a cold case in the episode airing Dec. 13.

Executive producer Peter Lenkov wanted to include the internment experience ever since he read about it while researching Hawaii history before writing the series pilot.

Lenkov says it's a powerful story that most people don't know about.
