They Called Us Enemy Overview

They Called Us Enemy is a graphic memoir in which the actor and activist George Takei reflects on his childhood experience of living in two Japanese internment camps during World War II. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans of Japanese descent were viewed with suspicion, discriminated against, and ultimately imprisoned until the end of the war, including those who had never set foot in Japan. Takei has turned his personal trauma into a story of inspiration, and a cautionary tale about injustice, contemplating themes related to family, persecution, American society.
