Bittersweet Passage: Redress and the Japanese Canadian Experience, by Maryka Omatsu
Maryka Omatsu's family was among those whose lives were shattered and properties taken by the Canadian government's harsh and racist actions against Japanese Canadians during the Second World War. Bittersweet Passage is a moving account of the Japanese Canadian struggle to come to terms with a painful history. It is also the story of the author's own odyssey to rediscover her family's past in both Japan and Canada and as a key figure in the movement to win redress from the government.
