Synopsis

This extraordinary book commemorates the 3,000 Nisei (Japanese Americans) who died from the atomic blast in Hiroshima & documents the plight of another 1,000 hibakusha (survivors of the bomb) who returned to the West Coast after the war. Branded as "foreigners" in wartime Japan & as "enemies" in postwar United States, their pleas for medical help & political assistance have been ignored by both governments. Through this moving & enriching saga, Rinjiro Sodei makes the reader feel the power of individuals, who, against sociopolitical odds, have struggled to obtain their rights & sustain their bicultural identity.
