A handwritten note by Hiroshi Fukuwa. It records that 76 top members of Pro-Japan group, "Hokoku Seinendan," received a notice on January 25. They left the camp at 9 AM on January 26 and got on a train at 4 PM to leave. Included are Oye, Shirozono, and Hamada. They were presumably the incarcerees in the Tule Lake camp who were renouncing their U.S. citizenship and leaving for Japan.
The Hiroshi Fukuwa Manzanar Diary consists of a diary written by Hiroshi Ted Fukuwa, Kibei Nisei of Los Angeles, California, along with newsletters, clippings, and handwritten notes created/collected during his incarceration. His diary details his experiences during World War II, starting from the day when he left Los Angeles for the Manzanar incarceration camp in California and including his transfer to the Gila River camp in Arizona and segregation in the Tule Lake camp in California. The diary describes trips to the camps, construction of facilities, living conditions, work and salaries, events, incidents and accidents, reflecting a Kibei perspective. All materials in this collection are born-analog objects (digitized materials) only; the physical carriers (physical materials) remain with the donor.
