George Doi is a Nikkei born in a small mining town in British Columbia, Canada. He was just 9 years old when his family was uprooted and interned in Bay Farm camp. Now 88 years old, he still has sharp memories of those times and the hardships endured there. Upon retirement, George wrote a self-published volume chronicling the years during and after the war. Originally intended just as a family history, the book has been distributed more widely to Nikkei centres and places where historians may access the information. He has expanded on the book with shorter articles and stories which were published in the Nelson Star newspaper. He also wrote of a recent milestone achieved -- a cumulative walk of 40,075 km or the distance equal to the earth's circumference. That story was picked up by Black Press and featured in the newspapers around the province.
