Digital Resources: Japanese Canadian Internment: 40,000 Pages and 180 Photos Digitized by the Library and Archives Canada’s DigiLab

From a LAC Blog Post:

2019-01-10_11-05-17The DigiLab has hosted over forty projects since its launch in 2017, and two of those were carried out by Landscapes of Injustice. Landscapes of Injustice is a seven-year humanities project led by the University of Victoria to research and make known the history of the dispossession and deportation of Japanese-Canadians in 1942.

In total, over 40,000 pages of textual material and a little more than 180photos were digitized by the two researchers with Landscapes of Injustice. Some of the documents are now available online for all to consult.

The post continues with a few examples of items (images and text) found in this digital collection along with direct links to access all materials.
