Highlighting the unexpected moments of joy and wonder in the face of hardship and injustice, The Tashme Project chronicles the experiences of the Nisei, second generation Japanese Canadians. Now in their 70s and 80s, they were children during WWII and subjected to Canada’s strict internment laws. The unique memories they share of interment and post-War resettlement offer a crucial and little known glimpse into Canada’s shameful wartime past, while offering glimmers of hope for the future.
