Kyowakai: Memory & Healing in New Denver

The Village of New Denver has released a new historical book titled Kyowakai: Memory and Healing in New Denver, written by local author Anne Champagne and designed by John Endo Greenaway. The book tells the story of Japanese Canadian internment in New Denver, the creation of the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre (NIMC) by the Kyowakai Society, and the healing it inspired. The 76-page, soft cover book features colour and black-and-white photographs, including images from the NIMC collection, Nikkei National Museum, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and various private collections. This book is available for purchase $21 (includes GST) at the NIMC Gift Shop or by sending us an email.
