George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his magnetic performances, sharp wit, and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father's -- and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. In 1942, at the order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, every person of Japanese descent on the west coast was rounded up and shipped to one of ten "relocation centers," hundreds or thousands of miles from home, where they would be held for years under armed guard. They Called Us Enemy is Takei's firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, the terrors and small joys of childhood in the shadow of legalized racism, his mother's hard choices, his father's tested faith in democracy, and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future. What does it mean to be American? Who gets to decide? When the world is against you, what can one person do? To answer these questions, George Takei joins cowriters Justin Eisinger & Steven Scott and artist Harmony Becker for the journey of a lifetime.… (més)

During World War II, 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry were incarcerated in concentration camps in the United States. President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066 authorized the military to round up both citizens and non-citizens alike.

Read the recently published graphic memoir, then learn more at the website:

THEY CALLED US ENEMY by George Takei, Eisinger Scott Becker, and Steven Scott tells the true story of Takei’s childhood in American concentration camps during World War II. The book’s stunning illustrations capture the celebrity’s experiences and reveal lessons that are still relevant today.

Densho is a digital collection chronicling incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. The site includes the core story, an encyclopedia, digital archives, American concentration camp information, and many other resources.

I don't usually read nonfiction, but I enjoyed this book. I think I most likely how it wasn't biased, but it clearly speed how faults occurred and where people made poor choices. What a hard, hard situation. I want to look up the musical about this time as well. ( )

Required reading for anyone like me whose history classes never made it past World War I. Also a reminder that we must learn from history to avoid repeating it. Having heard George Takei speak extensively about his experiences and having seen (and loved) Allegiance, there was much that was new but the story is told well and the art is lovely.

This story, in this form, by this author, will hopefully (re)acquaint lots of people with a part of history which remains forgotten or ignored by so many.

A perfect antidote to today's political toxicity. George Takei is my hero - not for what he endured, but for how he lived his life. This should be on everyone's reading list in 2019. ( )
