Mi viaje para descubrir el legado de mi abuela Yuri Kochiyama

Donde ocurrió la magia

Esta es la mesa de la cocina con panfletos, probablemente, promoviendo alguna protesta o conferencia; lapiceras, cartas a los amigos o prisioneros políticos a lo largo del país, sobres y artículos de diario. Mi padre decía que cuando era niño, durante la cena tenían que comer sobre esa montaña de papeles.

Mucho de los diarios que se observa en esta foto pertenecen a los prisioneros políticos que regularmente se escribían con ella. Durante 50 años, escribió miles de cartas a los prisioneros a lo largo del país.
