October 28 commemorates WWI internment in Canada and marks a day of reconciliation with Canada’s historical past. Between 1914-1920, some 8,579 individuals were interned in camps across Canada as Prisoners of War. However, they were, in fact, immigrants. The injustice of their internment and treatment behind barbed wire is a subject of study, discussion, and memorializing. The PCUH has worked toward this end. Under the auspices of the PCUH, recent research has been published online as a download.
We honour and cherish the memory of those who did no wrong and suffered so much because of who they were and where they came from.
