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.… (mais)

This graphic memoir recounts actor George Takei's experiences being "interned" (incarcerated) during World War 2. He was sent, as a child, with his parents and siblings on buses and trains with thousands of other Americans of Japanese descent--his family was first sent to Arkansas, and then to Tule Lake in far northern California.

This book is certainly a fair read for adults (especially for fans of Takei), but it is an excellent YA book. Takei and his writing/illustrating team do an excellent job of addressing the frightening and exhausting parts of the camps from a child's perspective, while touching on what the adults dealt with, and also how his parents did their best to make the camps seem like an adventure for George and his younger siblings. As an adult reading this book, much of the hardship--the fear, the separation, the loss of home and businesses, the being held--seem a bit glossed over. But he is telling his story with a child's memories, for kids. ( )

They Called Us Enemy is a graphic memoir by George Takei. It tells about his time as a child in the Japanese-American internment camps. It was a great a good format for the story. Since it is told from the point of view of a young child, the words could convey that point of view while the illustrations revealed more the truth. the book told the reader about a part of history that is often skipped over in American schools. It is important to acknowledge the dark parts of our history, especially when they can be reflected upon with the benefit of time passing. Knowing about past mistakes helps us recognize when we may be repeating those mistakes. Takei does this wonderfully at the end of the book by relating his experiences to the experiences of those affected by the Muslim travel ban and the Child Separation Policy on our southern border. I definitely recommend this graphic memoir to others. ( )

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.

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.
