Book summary: What Do I Remember of the Evacuation?


The purpose of the poem is to portray what the young Japanese children who were affected by the war, went through and thought about after being taken out of their lives; literally. The purpose is portrayed in this quote:

"Families were made to move in two hours abandoning everything, leaving pets and possessions at gun point."

This persona represents the many children who felt inferior to the "ruling" white race in Canada.
