Message From a Daughter
By Lily Ozaki Arasato
This is a story of my family’s trying experiences during World War II. We share it with you, as it is a human story that illuminates another unseen and unreported hardship caused by wars.
I am the youngest of four children of my parents, Otokichi and Hideko Ozaki. We lived in peaceful ‘Amauulu plantation camp near Hilo on the Big Island of Hawai‘i.
