I continue to be amazed at the number of readers who have contacted me about Kazuko, my assistant in Chicago for several years. You may link to her incredible story here…
… and to my follow-up with answers to questions about whether Kaz located her Japanese family. You can also get answers to recurring questions such as “Why didn’t Kaz and her boyfriend get married?” and “Is Kaz going to Japan?”
Many younger readers were unaware of the internment by the United States of Japanese and Japanese-Americans during World War II. Others could not understand why Japan invaded various parts of Southeast Asia and attacked Pearl Harbor. I wrote a piece for Politico and it is also posted at Radnor Reports. You may link to that piece here.
Kaz appreciates the concern and interest, but she wants to go back to being, in her words, an unnoticed “American Girl Now American Old Lady.”
