Forced Internment of Ukrainians by Canadian Government During World War I [Radio]

As we posted yesterday, Lubomyr Luciuk appeared on Chicago Public Radio’s World View radio show to discuss Ukrainian Internment during WW1:

It is common knowledge that the U.S. government put Japanese-Americans into internment camps during World War II.  But few know that the Canadian government forced Ukrainians and other Europeans into interment camps during World War I.
We hear from Lubomyr Luciuk, Professor of Politics and Economics at the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario. His current project is the Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund,established to support projects that remind Canadians of a dark episode in their history.

The show is available to listen to below:
