THAT NEVER HAPPENED: Canada’s First National Internment Operations, will air on documentary Channel on Wednesday, November 20th at 9pm ET/PT.
The film reveals the story of Canada’s first national internment operations between 1914-1920 when over 88,000 people were forced to register, and more than 8,500 were wrongfully imprisoned in internment camps across Canada, because of the country they came from. In 1854, the public records were destroyed, and in the 1980’s a few brave men and women began working to reclaim this chapter in history and ensure future generations would know about it.
THAT NEVER HAPPENED was released theatrically across Canada last year, and was the Official Selection of the Permanent Mission of Canada to the United Nations in September 2018. The film screened for the Human Rights Council in Geneva, as part of celebrations marking the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
