Donna Lower Nord discussed George Takei’s book, “They Called Us Enemy,” a firsthand account of life in an internment camp during World War II.

Nord’s presentation at Monday’s Iola Unity Club, also included information she gleaned when touring an old internment camp near Granada, Colo., recently.

During World War II, roughly 120,000 Japanese-Americans were forced to live in internment camps in the western United States during the war.
