What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 5 in a series – “… anything that might suggest he still had some connection with Japan”

August 1st, 2019

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


“That night Papa burned the flag he had brought with him from Hiroshima thirty-five years earlier. It was such a beautiful piece of material, I couldn’t believe he was doing that. He burned a lot of papers too, documents, anything that might suggest he still had some connection with Japan. These precautions didn’t do him much good. He was not only an alien; he held a commercial fishing license, and in the early days of the war the FBI was picking up all such men, for fear they were somehow making contact with enemy ships off the coast.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
