In 1999, 12 friends met for dinner at my sister Grace Sakamoto’s home in Toronto. After dinner we had a frank discussion about our experiences in the New Denver Internment Camp, during 1942-1946.The consensus was a bitter/sweet episode in our lives , but with a major influence on our future career and live style. Following this meeting, I painted 27 oil paintings about my impressions of the life style of teenagers in the Internment Camp in New Denver , 1942-1946. The paintings were completed in 2002. An Opening exhibit of the paintings with explanatory panels was held at the Edmonton Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre on March 23, 2002 – exactly 60 years from the day we left Prince Rupert to begin our internment. In the summer of 2008, this book was created, using the paintings with stories and to complete the story, a prologue and an epilogue.
