Slip Slidin' Away
In this episode, a romp in the snow turns into a tough lesson about captivity and control.
Like the other episodes of Scapegoat Cities, this episode is based on actual events. The incident in this episode took place at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming in late 1942. Min Tanaka is not a real person; I invented him for the purposes of the story. In preparing the story, though, in addition to looking at archival materials, I spoke to one of the boys who was sledding that day, now an elderly man.
