        DID YOU KNOW:

5,000 Ukrainians were forcibly taken to internment camps scattered throughout Canada from 1914 to 1920 as “enemy aliens”? 

They were stripped of their property?

80,000 Canadians, many Ukrainian, were required to register and report regularly to officials?

Men in camps were “hungry as dogs” and made to do back breaking work year round?

Others were discharged from work?

Women and children were left to fend for themselves on remote farms?

Some camps included women and children?

Many of your Ukrainian Canadian forefathers never spoke about this humiliating period of their life?
