What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 15 in a series – “My own family…collapsed as an integrated unit.”

August 13th, 2019

Whatever dignity or feeling of filial strength we may have known before December 1941 was lost, and we did not recover it until many years after the war, not until after Papa died and we began to come together, trying to fill the vacuum his passing left in all our lives.”
