Enemy Aliens Internment In Canada Exhibit at The Sam Waller Museum

The Sam Waller Museum has a traveling exhibit on display called Enemy Aliens--Internment in Canada from 1914 to 1920. Enemy Aliens was a term used during world war one to describe citizens of states that were at war with the British Empire and resided in Canada during the First World War.


Museum Director Sharain Jones says a lot of people are familiar with the Japanese internment in Canada during World War Two but there are many people that are unaware that people were interned during the First World War as well.


The exhibit is produced by The Canadian War Museum and The Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties foundation and it has about 25 panels that teach the history of these internment camps through text and images, and the museum was able to get this traveling exhibit through a grant from the Endowment Council of the Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund.


The exhibit will be on display until November 30th.
