Nimura Family Collection

This page of the scrapbook shows documents from two distinct periods of Hisa's wartime life. At the top is the form where Hisa formally requests to drop out of high school after her father is forced to move to the Santa Fe Department of Justice Internment Camp after being branded a trouble maker. While not directly stated on the request form, Hisa viewed dropping out of school as a sort of protest of her father's removal from Tule Lake. The bottom two documents are from later concerning HIsa's travel arrangements to leave Tule Lake after the end of World War II.
