History & Memories

This section records and weaves together the stories of eNanda, its core heritage sites and the leaders associated with them.

First and foremost, this site collects raw material, original voices, and memories of individuals from eNanda and elsewhere. Memories can be vague, fragmented or distorted, but all memories are worth sharing, because they are all valuable pieces of a puzzle and may prompt others to talk about and remember the past.
