Kunio Homma's comments:

Came to Amache, first for history and closure. It's been 63 years since I've been back. When my sister, brother, and I saw the foundation, it brought back a flood of memories.

Kumiko Hasegawa's comments:

My two younger brothers, Hisao and Kunio Homma, came to visit and find the actual barrack we lived in Amache camp. We went yesterday (7/3/08) and located even the exact room we lived in for three years. It was really exciting and emotional. (Barrack 12K Room 12E)
