Kogawa Pleads For Childhood Home

Canadian author Joy Kogawa, whose autobiographical novel Obasan told of the internment of Canadian citizens of Japanese ancestry during World War II, is trying to save her childhood home from imminent demolition. At the time, the Vancouver home was confiscated by the Canadian government and sold without permission of its owners. There is now a movement to save the Kogawa House, and you can visit the site and make donations if you wish.
