Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A lesser-known piece of North Dakota history hits home for an author who spoke at NDSU's campus today.

Kyoko Nozaki's book, "Internment and Identity Shift," is a personal story. During World War II, her father spent 10 months in an internment camp at Fort Lincoln in Bismarck. The site is now home to United Tribes Technical College.

Nozaki says she hopes to spread awareness about this lesser-known period in history.

Kyoko Nozak, Author: "People are not aware of what happened. Of course, it's such a long time ago. But, I think the sentiments still kind of linger in some parts of the States or in Japan. So, I think it's important to know what happened in the past."

Nozaki is now a professor emeritus in Intercultural Studies at a University in Japan.
