1953895261_553efaea66 Hey guys, here’s something I got from my friend from the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (San Francisco Japantown).  I attended the first workshop, and it’s a really great opportunity.  I plan to participate further and hope to make a video.  I hope you guys (i.e., Daisuke) will be interested!  You can be of any Nikkei generation to join.  –Asuka, JASS Historian



Training Workshop

11:30am – 2:30pm, December 13, 2008

JCCCNC, 1840 Sutter Street , San Francisco

FREE and open to the public. All ages welcome!

REEL NIKKEI STORIES is designed to empower young people with the confidence, training and tools to interview, video document and share the untold stories of Japanese American families. Specifically, REEL NIKKEI STORIES hopes to  capture stories of “Nisei” (2nd Generation) who lived through Japanese American internment and World War II,  before these oral histories are lost forever.

“If history becomes real to a person, it empowers them and lives through them and then can be passed on from generation to generation.” – JCCCNC Executive Director Paul Osaki

Learn from professionals how to:

· Ask the right questions

· Properly video document oral histories
