Description
This collection contains letters written by Japanese-American Ami Inuzuka to her friends Hardin and Raemond Craig, with 13 letters written while the Inuzukas were interned at the Gila River Relocation Center in Rivers, Arizona, beginning in 1942 and discussing life in an internment camp. In the rest of her letters, Ami discusses her life in Los Angeles, her family, and the difficulties of growing older.
