いくさゆにいちてぃ (Mother’s Story of Battle of Okinawa)
By Junko Oshiro
This book is written in Japanese. It was published in 1989 and reprinted in 1995. Originally published in Japanese, “A Mother’s Story” chronicles firsthand the tragedies of war. With the encouragement of her son, Oshiro Junko, at 70 years of age, shares a very personal account of her expe- rience during the war. As written in a prologue by her son, Minoru, “...her story could serve to remind people of the importance of peace.” Your heart will grieve for the atrocities the Okinawan people experienced and rejoice in this family’s survival.
