Camp Days 1942 - 1945: Childhood Memories of Chizuko de Queiroz

"This collection of paintings by the gifted artist, Chizuko Judy Sugita de Queiroz, is her memoir in art of her girlhood years imprisoned in [an internment] camp called Poston in the desolation of a desert in Arizona... Chizuko's art is a powerful narrative of a shameful event in our history. It is also an evocative personal chronicle of the survival of a loving and resilient family."

George Takei -excerpt from his introduction to the book Camp Days 1942-1945
