The contents are based on four interviews with Nellie herself, as well as interviews with a daughter and a nephew.\n  </p>\n  <p>\n   The memoir begins with an account of Nellie's mother Rui Suzuki's life and eventual immigration to the U.S. Rui had left her first husband and was working in a fabric shop in Osaka when she met Nellie Hill, a wealthy American woman who was in the middle of a world tour. She became the woman's companion and eventually traveled to the U.S. with her and lived in Boston. Hill helped her set up a fabric store in Yokohama—there, she met and married her second husband (and Nellie Nakamura's father). They immigrated to San Francisco, where they briefly ran a restaurant. They then worked for a French farming family in Merced. Nellie Nakamura was born the second child in 1902. Nellie's father died suddenly; Rui married Yonejiro Tsuruda. Rui herself died of stomach cancer at the age of 53—before her death, she warned Nellie to make sure she made a life for herself instead of sacrificing herself to caring for her younger half-siblings and step-father. She married an\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">\n    Issei\n   </a>\n   , Takazo Henry Nakamura, and together they moved to Los Angeles, where they worked as domestics. They eventually returned to Mountain View, where her family lived.\n  </p>\n  <p>\n   Nellie, her husband, and their children were living in Los Altos when Pearl Harbor was attacked. They were taken to Santa Anita Assembly Center, and from there, were incarcerated at Heart Mountain concentration camp. She and her husband worked as servers in the mess hall. One of her sons contracted spinal meningitis and died in Heart Mountain at the age of 11. When her younger brother and his family were able to\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Resettlement\" title=\"Resettlement\">\n    resettle\n   </a>\n   in Minnesota, Nellie and her family followed, and they moved into a house together in Minneapolis in December 1943. They\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Return_to_West_Coast\" title=\"Return to West Coast\">\n    returned to California\n   </a>\n   in 1945, and were able to move back to her stepfather's farm, which had been cared for by a neighboring white family in their absence. The memoir concludes with an account of how the Nakamura family reestablished their lives after the war.\n  </p>\n  <div id=\"authorByline\">\n   <b>\n    Authored by\n    <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Emily_Anderson\" title=\"Emily Anderson\">\n     Emily Anderson\n    </a>\n   </b>\n  </div>\n  <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n   Anderson, Emily\n  </div>\n  <p>\n   Might also like\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Dandelion_Through_the_Crack/Kiyo%27s_Story_(book)\" title=\"Dandelion Through the Crack/Kiyo's Story (book)\">\n     Dandelion Through the Crack/Kiyo's Story\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   by Kiyo Sato;\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Desert Exile (book)\" title=\"Desert Exile (book)\">\n     Desert Exile\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   by Yoshiko Uchida;\n   <i>\n    <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese-American Internment Camps (book)\" title=\"Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese-American Internment Camps (book)\">\n     Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese-American Internment Camps\n    </a>\n   </i>\n   by Mary Matsuda Gruenewald\n  </p>\n </div>\n</div>",
