Tell us your story
Did your ancestors arrive in North America or Canada before WWI? If so, there is a very high probability that they were affected by the internment experience. For many, the fact that they were interned resulted in unjustified guilt and shame that kept their internment unknown to future generations within their families. The Croatian Canadian Internment Project encourages all Canadians or Americans of Croatian descent whose family lived or worked in Canada prior to WWI to contact us in order to see if your relatives were among those interned. The CCIP has established the Descendants of Croatian Internment (DOCI) organization that will keep its members informed of the project's progress and how they can help us tell the Croatian internment story as completely as possible.
