Book Launch: The Stories Were Not Told
January 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm MST
Author Sandra Semchuk launches her new book with special guests, about Canada’s First Wold War Interment Camps.
From 1914 to 1920, Canada imprisoned thousands of men who had immigrated to Canada from the Austro-Hungarian Empire as “enemy aliens,” many with their families. Most of those imprisoned were Ukrainians; almost all were civilians. Photographic artist Sandra Semchuk’s book, “The Stories Were Not Told”, presents this largely unrecognized event through photography, cultural theory and personal testimony, including stories told at last by internees and their descendants. Sandra Semchuk describes how acts of legislated racism have shaped lives and society. She discusses how to move toward greater reconciliation, remembrance and healing.
