The Memory Project (Our Vets)

I had the pleasure to speak with Ret. Army Volunteer WW2 Veteran, Charles Scot-Brown twice this week. People, keep the memories alive, and share with your children...

The Memory Project

Welcome to the Memory Project

Stories of Service and Sacrifice

This nationwide bilingual project will create a record of Canada’s participation in the Second World War and Korean War as seen through the eyes of thousands of veterans. The Memory Project will provide every living Second World War and Korean War veteran with the opportunity to share their memories through oral interviews and digitized artefacts and memorabilia. These stories and artefacts will be available on this site for teachers, students and the general public.
The Memory Project Archives is an initiative of the Historica-Dominion Institute and is made possible with generous funding from Canadian Heritage.
