Commemorating First World War Internment in Nanaimo

Artwork by School District 68 students  

Commemorating First World War Internment in Nanaimo features designs by local grade 5-10 students to honour the memory of those interned in Nanaimo and across the country during the First World War.  While the Enemy Aliens: Internment in Canada, 1914-1920 exhibit was at Nanaimo Museum, students from SD68 learned about the experience of people affected by internment, including its ongoing legacy. This exhibit is the culmination of the school program’s final activity – to imagine and design a commemoration of this historical injustice, using interesting symbols, sharing important facts, and sending a powerful message.  

Visit Commemorating First World War Internment in Canada in the Community Gallery from September 3rd to October 1st.
