Tashme: A Japanese Relocation Centre, 1942-1946
Self-Published, Canada 1993 - iv, 87 pages. Reproductions of black and white photos. "I have written this booklet because I have found so many people know almost nothing about the evacuation of the Japanese Canadian people from the west coast during the war. At the coast, after Pearl Harbor, a Japanese family might be living next door to you and a few days later they were gone and no one knew where, particularly after they left the exhibition buildings in Vancouver. I feel sorry this story has to be told, in part, so that such a thing does not happen to any other group of people in this country. Tashme was established at the Fourteen Mile Ranch and the first families arrived in September, 1942. I have written mostly about the high school and its students but everyone in the community was effected by the events I have recorded." - from Preface. Author taught high school for two years in Tashme. Clean and unmarked with light wear. Two-inch rectangular patch of mild discoloration to upper right corner of front cover where label removed. A sound copy of this important history. OCLC Number 41799350. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
