Stories from the Homefront: Oshawa During the Second World War

Creator(s): Oshawa Community Museum and Archives

Between 1939 and 1945, nearly 600,000 Canadian men and women left their homes, families and communities to serve their country overseas in World War II. But what happened to the wives and husbands, children and siblings, parents and grandparents who stayed behind? In this Community Memories exhibit, the Oshawa Community Museum and Archives (OCMA) explores the impact of the war on Canadians at home, especially in Oshawa, Ontario.
