A Memory Reclaimed, A Commission Fulfilled. Author Marinel Mandres

Author: Marinel Mandres
Title: A memory reclaimed, a commission fulfilled : Serbs and Romanians during Canada's first national internment operations of 1914-1920
Published: Kingston (Ontario), Kashtan Press, [2022]

Marinel Mendres examines Canada's internment of Canadian immigrants of Serbian and Romanian ethnic backgrounds, 1914-1920. During World War I, Canada's War Measures Act declared immigrants who were born in Austria-Hungary, Germany, or Ottoman Empire to be ”enemy aliens”. This decision also affected Serbs, Montenegrins, and Romanians who were born in one of these enemy countries, by also marking them as enemy aliens; the War Measures Act did not require their compatriots who were born in Serbia, Romania, or Montenegro to register as enemy aliens because those countries were observed as allied countries. The publication explains the consequences of this act and the experiences of Serbian and Romanian immigrants in Canadian internment camps.
