We were given a room, one room for all our brothers and sisters. We took our belongs, whatever we could carry, some were confiscated, they took it away from us. Like my sister would…she hid some money in her shoes and they took that away. No one told us anything. Even my mother and father, didn’t know where we were going. We just went along, whenever they went, we went. It took us about three weeks. So we landed in New Orleans, Louisiana, we got off and right away they DDT fumigated everybody.
