Abstract
Honouliuli, near the town of Waipahu on the Hawaiian island of O'ahu, is best known as a World War II internment camp for Japanese Americans. The camp also was the home of approximately 2,700 Korean prisoners of war from 1943 to 1945. These were largely non-combatant civilian laborers who had been forced to work for the war effort by the Japanese colonial government in Korea and were captured during the Pacific islands campaign. This document is based on a list published as an attachment to the December 15, 1945, issue of a newsletter produced in the camp titled Free Press Korean for Liberated Korea (자유한인보). It was transcribed from a copy of the newsletter in the National Archives of Korea and romanized versions of the names added by Juhee Lee.
