Brown Bag History is a series of history talks held every other Wednesday at Revelstoke Museum & Archives. Topic for January 22, 2020: Canada created Internment Camps for Enemy Aliens during World War I, but due to discriminatory practices, the majority of the people interned were civilians from Eastern Europe, particularly the Ukraine. Learn more about the camps, and about the camp that was located in Mount Revelstoke National Park in 1915
