Book - 2019
Rate this:
"From 1914 to 1920, thousands of men who had immigrated to Canada from the Austro-Hungarian Empire were imprisoned as "enemy aliens," many with their families. Most were Ukrainians; almost all were civilians. The Stories Were Not Told presents this largely unrecognized event through photography, cultural theory, and personal testimony, including stories told at last by internees and their descendants. Semchuk describes how lives and society have been shaped by acts of legislated racism and how to move toward greater reconciliation, remembrance, and healing. This is necessary reading for anyone seeking to understand the cross-cultural and intergenerational consequences of Canada's first internment camps."--
