When My Name Was Keoko - Linda Sue Park A kids' book. It's definitely aimed at a young age group, but she's a Newbery Medal-winning author, and the topic was one that I found interesting, so I thought it'd be worth reading.
It's a fictionalized-but-mostly-true story of what it was like for a young girl to live in Japanese-occupied Korea during WWII. I was interested, as I live in a neighborhood where many Koreans 'pretend' to be Japanese, so some background on the political situation that led to this odd situation was illuminating - even from a kids' perspective!
