  Description     Question     The film  
Success at hockey was based on skills, not race, explains Eugene Ouchi, a Japanese Canadian talking about his childhood. A scene from The War between Us, a film about the forced confinement of Japanese Canadians in Canadian internment camps, helps to make the point that hockey was an "ice-breaker" between the two communities.
