Fighting prejudice in Japan: The families of Hansen's disease patients speak out

Abstract

This collection of twelve life stories delves into the experiences of families of Hansen’s Disease (Leprosy) patients who tell their own stories in their own words. In detailed interviews spanning more than ten years, Ai Kurosaka presents their struggles from the previously neglected perspective of family members of patients. The storytellers tell how they were torn by experiences of separation, discrimination and broken relationships.
