Press Release – November 2012
The Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre (NIMC) in New Denver is now closed for the season. Thank you to everyone who visited and supported the NIMC this summer, especially the Kyowakai Society for their ongoing involvement and assistance.
Over the last year, the NIMC has been working with the Nikkei National Museum in Burnaby, BC to develop a computerized database system to catalogue, digitize and preserve the historic collections in the NIMC. Over 700 records are now available online at www.nikkeimuseum.org and we encourage you to take a look! Thank you to the staff at the museum, and to the generous funders who made this partnership possible: the Museum Assistance Program of Canadian Heritage, the Vancouver Foundation, Young Canada Works in Heritage Institutions, and Canada Summer Jobs.
