Farewell To Manzanar

By Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston & James D. Houston (6)

Show/Hide Info

Jeanne Wakatsuki's memoir Farewell to Manzanar, cowritten with her husband James D. Houston, is the story of a Japanese-American family interned during World War II. Jeanne Wakatsuki was a young girl when the bombing of Pearl Harbor led to the relocation of Japanese in the United States, and the Wakatsuki family was forced into the Manzanar Relocation Center, where they lived in wretched conditions. Jeanne turned to religion, while her father became emotionally disturbed, and the memoir delves into Wakatsuki’s sad recollection of her father’s dignity in better times. A riot later breaks out in the camp, resulting in physical injuries, and even fatalities. In time, the interns at Manzanar manage to create a semblance of a village, and life improves to an extent. When the Japanese are released in 1944, Jeanne and her family take up their lives again, but Jeanne continues to experience the painful prejudice of her classmates at school. Three decades later, she returns with her husband and children to Manzanar, a place that had long seemed an illusion. Wakatsuki’s memoir is a powerful read, chronicling a tragic and grievous period of history, and is sharply crafted reminder of racial prejudice’s power and abject cruelty.
