Welcome to my blog! I am a PhD candidate at Western University in London, Ontario with an interest in Canadian environmental, digital, and military history. Originally from rural Manitoba, I completed my undergraduate degree in history from the University of Manitoba and my M.A. from Western.
My main research interest is the history of German prisoners of war (PoWs) in Canada during the Second World War. Most of my research has focused on Manitoba’s Riding Mountain Park Labour Project (also known as the Whitewater Lake PoW Camp – you can find more of this at www.prisonersinmb.blogspot.ca). My current research examines German PoWs in labour projects in Canada, primarily in Northwestern Ontario, Alberta, and Manitoba.
If you have stumbled across this while trying to learn more about a specific prisoner, guard, or camp, or you have any questions, please get in touch! I am always looking for more information about PoWs in Canada so if you have any stories, photographs, or information that you would be willing to share, please let me know.
