The Story of Big Wunhunglou

It was 1942 we had been deported to the Topaz relocation center. It has been about a year since the Japanese bombed the naval base in Hawaii also known as Pearl Harbor. I was taken away from my home and all that is left in my memory is the site of my mother shedding the last set of tears. I would probably never see my beautiful home again. It was a few days before my tenth birthday when U.S. forces burst in to our home. It felt as if I was the intruder in my own home. We were living in California at the time. However after they came in we were put on trains and sent to these camps in which I thought I would never leave. We were not treated badly. Even having my family right by my side I felt alone, alone and afraid. These americans they thought with fear. They let thier mind control thier actions. Not one time did the thought of our pain and agony cross thier minds. I may have been young but i understood what was happening. I also understood that we were being held against our will. That we were being treated unfarely with no possible explamation for why we were in there. We were put in rooms with people whom I had never seen before. We had games, but doing the same stuff every day got boring. And as the days went on and more and more people got put in the camps there was less spaces and more crowds. As the war went on this kept on more and more people less and less space. At our building there were at least four families. Two of which had three families. And all were girls. I grew close to the children. we played together, ate together, slept together, everything we did was together until they had to move to a different camp. I was heart broken. It was like losing a member of my family. I soon got over it when a family member of my own died. My mom was sick before coming to the camp, but as the years went on she got worst. And in 1944 she died leaving my father with my brother and my two sisters. Times were rough and being the oldest i had to help the most. We got out of the camps, but there was nothing left of our home. my father got a job and we soon got a home. My name is Big Wunhunglou and I will never forget my mom, my friends, and where i come from. For i am a surviver and will never forget it.
