The Memory Project is a remarkable collection of oral histories that pays tribute to the men and woman who fought in one of Canada’s greatest military efforts. Edited by Marc Chalifoux, executive director of The Dominion Institute, The Memory Project is an extension of an on-going educational program that connects veterans with school children across the country. In the powerful words of the veterans’ themselves, the World War II experience is revealed in intimate detail — from enlistment and active duty to the home front and eventual victory. Accompanying the stories is a wealth of archival material including photographs, documents, medals, letters, and more. In turns moving, horrifying, and heartwarming, The Memory Project is an exceptional piece of history — a record of the men and women who fought, and sometimes perished, in order to preserve our way of life.
