Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tei"....a powerful, moving story of a mother's desperate struggle to evacuate her 3 and 5 year old boys and baby daughter  from Manchuria after Japan's defeat in WWII.  
 
From a typically modest and cultured Japanese mother, circumstances force Tei to become a tough,  outspoken woman . . .  Her memoir is not only  about suffering . . . but also includes  moments of humor, romance,  and beauty. 
 
It is a story without  boundaries for all time. 

Caroline Matano Yang
Former Executive Director  of
the Japan-US Educational Commission
(Fulbright Program)

"Tei's story is impossible to forget, a bone-achingly sharp and beautiful reminder of my privilege."
-- Ansley Clark, MFA graduate student
"The story of Tei Fujiwara is amazing. I found myself in equal parts, amazed, humbled, and terrified if I could ever live that standard of relentlessness and courage."
--Chuck Nemer, voracious reader in Wisconsin


As the translator of this remarkable memoir which became a Japanese bestseller, it wasn't possible to remain objective. This is a very emotional, personal account of a war refugee and her family who flee from Manchuria, travel down through northern Korea, cross the newly established 38th Parallel into southern Korea, and back home to war torn Japan. Her story gives the reader insight into not only the historical setting but also the feelings of the Japanese, Koreans, and Russians caught in the middle of WWII. I was privileged to translate this important document. 
Nana Mizushima
