Oral History Collection

You can listen to the Nikkei National Museum’s Oral History Collection online.  The museum has partnered with Simon Fraser University to digitize our collection and the interviews are now available to hear from the comfort of your chair.  There are currently over 300 digitized interviews, with more to come.

The museum would especially like to thank Dr Andrea Geiger for all the work she has done to make this project happen.
