'Enemy Aliens': The Internment of Jewish Refugees in Canada, 1940-43

Creator(s): Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre

Through eyewitness testimony and artefacts, this exhibit explores a little-known chapter in Canada's national history: The wartime internment of approximately 2,300 civilian refugees of Nazism, most of them Jews. The internees' journey - from fascist Europe to refuge in England, imprisonment by Britain and Canada and eventual release - is a bittersweet tale of survival during the Holocaust.
