Graphic memoir in a WWII Japanese internment camp from a child‘s point of view. Every history curriculum should include this book.
Book 297 11/30/19
This is Takei‘s remembrance of his childhood in the Japanese internment camps during WWII. But I especially like how he tells the story of life after the war, and about the government making financial reparations to those incarcerated people. I didn‘t know much about this history until I met my husband, whose mother was a child near Takei‘s age when she was in the camps with her family. Her family lost businesses and homes, like many others. ⬇️
