The Winds of Change


From: Wanda’s War


Chapter 9 explores Canada’s role in taking those displaced by the Second World War and the conclusion of the UNRRA project. The chapter discusses British and Canadian plans to exchange four thousand Polish labour’s with German prisoners of war, Ludger Dionne’s lobbying of the government to bring more Polish citizens to Canada, the first stages of a post-war immigration, the “moral obligation” to take displaced persons from Europe, and the push back from Canadians.
