By Joan Loveridge-Sanbonmatsu.

Imperial Valley Nisei Women centers on the oral histories of second generation Japanese American women from Imperial Valley, California who were interned at Poston 1, Arizona during World War II.

Inspiring stories of five remarkable women document their courage and determination in confronting physical and emotional hardships, racial and gender discrimination, language barriers and wartime “concentration camps” in the United States. Resettlement after camp meant extreme losses of property and finances.

Mabel Kawashima Ota, Mary Shigematsu Hoshizaki, Mary Mitamura Sanbonmatsu, Yoshiko Mitamura Kodama and Ruri Tsuchiya Ishimaru tell abut their lives before camp, how they transcended Poston and moved on in their lives giving us all messages for future generations.
