Nobuyoshi (Nobby) Hayashi – An Interview

Elder Nobuyoshi (Nobby) Hayashi still lives in New Denver BC, a former internment site for Japanese Canadians during WWII. Here he shares stories of growing up on Powell Street in Vancouver playing baseball prior to the war, and then the forced relocation of his family to the interior during the war. To this day, Nobby volunteers at the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre in New Denver, a museum which recently gained recognition as a National Historic Site.
