The Stories Were Not Told

 

Book Launch & Reading
April 4, 1pm

In addition to her work as an artist, Semchuk has recently published The Stories Were Not Told, a book of writing and photographs that brings to light the experiences of Ukrainian Canadians during the First World War. Join us in the gallery for a special reading and book signing.

From 1914 to 1920, thousands of men who had immigrated to Canada from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire were unjustly imprisoned as "enemy aliens," some with their families. Many communities in Canada where internees originated do not know these stories of Ukrainians, Germans, Bulgarians, Croatians, Czechs, Hungarians, Italians, Jews, Alevi Kurds, Armenians, Ottoman Turks, Poles, Romanians, Russians, Serbians, Slovaks, and Slovenes, amongst others. While most internees were Ukrainians, almost all were civilians.
