A Canadian War Museum exhibition examines the nation’s military and civilian experience in World War Two.
They came from every province, great cities and small towns. The men and women of Canada contributed mightily to the Allied victory in World War Two, labouring in munitions and armament factories, farming and fighting in far away fields, in the air, and on the sea – and 45,000 of them did not come home.
The Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, Ontario unveiled the exhibition, entitled ‘Forever Changed’, in November. A revealing examination of the human experience across the nation during wartime, it draws upon the facility’s vast collection of artefacts, documents and oral histories.
