What I’m Reading: …she was torn from her home in Los Angeles and shipped off to prison…

July 24th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


“I knew, for instance, that my grandmother was one of 112,000 Japanese Americans who were displaced during the war. I knew that she was twenty years old when she was torn from her home in Los Angeles and shipped off to prison, and that she spent four months living in a barn at the Pomona Fairgrounds while the permanent camp in Wyoming was being finished.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant
