The Remembered Days (short story)
Creators: Toshio Mori
A grandmother tells her grandchildren about her exclusion and confinement. Told in the first person voice of the grandmother, the story is divided into three sections: (1) recalling the train ride from Tanforan to Topaz ; (2) a rumination of the absurdity of the camp being dubbed the "Jewel of the Desert"; and (3) her remembrances of hearing of her son Yoshio's death while serving with the 442nd .
Author Toshio Mori wrote several stories featuring the same cast of characters for Pacific Citizen holiday issues from 1949 to 1952. He later incorporated the stories into the novel Woman from Hiroshima , eventually published in 1949.
