Italian Canadian Experiences During World War II

Location: Niagara Falls History Museum - Ontario Power Generation Gallery

The exhibition expresses the experiences of Italian Canadians during WWII by focusing on the people who lived through it or were affected by it. The exhibit conveys the stories, through audio, visual and text, of a cross section of ordinary Italian Canadian men, women and children from communities across Canada. The personal stories of internees, their families, neighbors and fellow community members form the life experiences of this exhibition.
