Synopsis: The internment of Italian Canadians in the 1940s is a troubling chapter in Canadian history, and something of a paradox. Although those events are not widely know - even within the Italian Canadian community, they continue to elicit strong, polarized responses. What are the central issues surrounding those internments? What effects have they had on those interned and on subsequent generations of Canadians of Italian heritage? How should we try to move forward in response to those events? Beyond Barbed Wire: Essays on the Internment of Italian Canadians includes diaries oral histories and testimonials as well as commentary and analysis. Some essays offer provocative points to stir debate; others provide thoughtful reflection and posit useful questions. These writings explore contentious issues and raise important questions about rights and responsibilities, power and privilege, political processes, ethnic identity, collective memory, and other topics relevant to contemporary Canadian society.
