... the "second" before the last photo before leaving camp forever!
... I remember standing on the plaform of one of these trucks.
Just before passing under the Camp's Main Gate on our way to the airfield, dad said to me: "Have a good look ... because you will never see this place again!"
Mom used to tell us — and more often towards the end of her life — that before we left the Camp, a Jap guard told her, face to face, that it was true that the Japanese had lost the war, but ... that they would come back again. And he said that when that time came … that they would catch all of us and put us into prison and that they would take all our possessions and that they would kill us!
Mom had another obsession ― besides stocking Sunlight soap bricks in the basement ― she said that "they" told us not to give too much love to our children because you never knew what could happen.
Now … she is longtime gone and I never asked her ... who "they" were … (?)
