What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 8 in a series – “They had all heard stories of Japanese homes being attacked…”

August 6th, 2019

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


“The name Manzanar meant nothing to us when we left Boyle Heights. We didn’t know where it was or what it was. We went because the government ordered us to. And, in the case of my older brothers and sisters, we went with a certain amount of relief. They had all heard stories of Japanese homes being attacked, of beatings in the streets of California towns. They were as frightened of the Caucasians as Caucasians were of us.”

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