About this title


Between 1866 and 1969, an estimated 8,000 individuals were sent to Molokai’s remote Kalaupapa peninsula because they were believed to have leprosy. They left a powerful testimony of their lives in the form of letters, petitions, music, memoirs, and oral history interviews. This combines more than 200 hours of interviews with archival documents, including over 300 letters and petitions written by the earliest residents translated from Hawaiian.


This is a large and attractive volume, brimming with high quality photographs of the residents and the landscapes
they inhabited. Many of the images, especially the closeup portraits, are deeply poignant, and reinforce the human
dimension of this public health policy while highlighting the individuality of those affected.
