“I am what I am because of you”
A History of Japanese Canadians in the Calgary Area

By The Calgary Japanese Community Association

This ambitious community history book, undertaken by the Calgary Japanese Community Association, was four years in the making and involved dozens of volunteers and incredible outreach into the community. The result is a book and DVD that includes personal and community histories and photographs that will be of enduring value to those who lived those experiences, to their children and future generations, as well as to historians interested in the immigration, WWII internment and resettlement of Japanese Canadians. Okage Sama De speaks to the resilience of the human spirit.
