Ambrose Research Conference presentation

An Inquiry into Post-War Ethnic German Migration and Resettlement in Canada. Post-Second World War ethnic German migration to Canada is a history marked by hardships, challenges, and a seemingly endless number of hurdles that people faced in the Old World, in transit, and upon arrival to Canada. Having been displaced by the war, many ethnic Germans made their way to Canada for a chance at a fresh start, far away from the devastation and suffering in Europe, especially in Eastern Europe.
