Description

The diary is one little girl's vision of her world as it closes in and destroys her. She is a highly intelligent child; but the full weight of Japanese propaganda can be felt through her thoughts and observations; she is also a classic example of the dutiful Japanese daughter, but one with a keenly observant eye. The book consists of Yoko's diary as well as a stirring prologue from Yoko's brother, a diary entry from Yoko's father after her death and a very moving letter of Yoko's death from the woman who nursed Yoko as she died. While the core of the book is Yoko's diary, it would also include information about the war, the Japanese way of life, Hiroshima today and extra material to complete a poignant and comprehensive view of one of history's most horrific events. Ages: 8-12
