To cap off a successful year of interviewing in 2008, we have added thirteen new interviews to the Densho Digital Archive (listed below). Thank you once again to our community partners: the National Park Service/Manzanar National Historic Site, the Watsonville – Santa Cruz Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League, and the Topaz Museum. We’re looking forward to conducting more interviews in 2009!
