In 2006, Anne Shimojima interviewed her 91-year-old aunt, who lived in an incarceration camp for Japanese-Americans during WWII. This grew into a family history project and a story for performance. The story Hidden Memory is now available on the Racebridges for Schools website in text and audio files with free lesson plans and discussion questions. Anne also gives workshops on her family history project and the creation of her family photobook, a DVD of slide shows, and the performance piece so that others can learn how to share the gift of their family histories.
