The Doukhobors of Canada

Creator(s): Doukhobor Discovery Centre

This exhibit focuses on the Russian origins of the Doukhobors and on the persecution the group suffered there. It follows their migration to Saskatchewan, where they thrived in the villages they established until new government regulations in 1907 forced them to forfeit their land. It traces their subsequent move to British Columbia and details the history of the communes they set up in that province before disbanding in 1939.
