The 30-ish page document was written by a Honolulu Times writer, Ichigo, that was interned in Amache.   He gave this to my Grandmother as people were preparing to depart from camp on July 31, 1945.  Ichigo thanked my uncle, Mike Wada, for helping get it printed in the Silkscreen shop as he wanted to distribute it before people left Amache.   He talks about his arrest after Pearl Harbor, journey to Camp via Angel Island and talks about the people arrested and travelling with him...  



It is a great reflection on camp life...    My uncle spent time reading through it and said it was a fascinating collection of short stories reflecting on camp memories and people he met at Amache..
