New Podcast from Library and Archives Canada Looks at the "Lest We Forget" Project
The second podcast in the LAC “Your History, Your Documentary Heritage” series.
From the Program Blurb:
In this episode we’ll examine the Lest We Forget project. Since 2001, Library and Archives Canada has been supporting the initiative to connect youth to Canada’s history by making military service files available in person and online. Each year, on Remembrance Day, we reflect on the sacrifices made by our veterans in order to preserve our values and freedoms. What better way to acknowledge the sacrifices of these men and women than to bring their stories to life. In this episode we speak with Project Manager Kyle Browness about the project, its expansion across the country and how teachers, students and Canadians alike can participate.
