PER ARDUA AD ASTRA: THE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR

29 June @ 7:30 pm ET

CLICK HERE to register

In a few short years, the Royal Canadian Air Force expanded from a small domestic force of 8 squadrons and 4,000 personnel to a globe-spanning air force with 80 operational squadrons and 250,000 personnel (including 17,000 women). The RCAF defended London, led the Normandy invasion, protected convoys in the North Atlantic, and took the fight to Hamburg and Berlin. RCAF pilots served in North Africa, Italy, Burma, and the Aleutians. And, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan was one of Canada’s most important wartime activities. This talk will explore the RCAF’s many contributions to victory in the Second World War.

NE-KAH-NE-TAH: THE LIBERATION OF WELBERG, MEMORY, MEANING AND EXPERIENCE

8 June @ 7:30 pm ET

CLICK HERE to register

Over five days in November 1944, the Algonquin Regiment played a pivotal role in the capture of the tiny Dutch town of Welberg. In 2018, twenty Canadian university students returned to the site as part of an experiential learning course focused on the Regiment’s warpath from Point 140 to the Kusten Canal. Throughout the program, students both ‘walked the ground’ and engaged with contemporary communities in order to better understand past evens and consider the construction of historical meaning and memory.

This talk brings together three of the course’s facilitators: Anna Pearson (York University), Stephen Connor (Nipissing University) and Robert Catsburg (Welberg Liberation Memorial Foundation) to explore ways in which this hybrid of traditional and experiential learning introduced university students to a shared historical and cultural heritage.

Lessons from WWI promo

Poignant, relevant, insightful
and a little scary


Now available on-demand
as video, podcast or transcript

Our panel of leading WWI historians and experts explored ways that an understanding of WWI might help us avoid slipping into a larger and more devastating world conflict through the crisis in Ukraine.

No one intended WWI. How did a relatively minor event evolve into a global cataclysm? What are the parallels? WWI, WWII and the conflict in Ukraine all involve the Baltic region. Why might that be? What lessons from WWI can be applied to the region, situation and conditions today to forestall escalation? What lessons from WWI might the diplomats and negotiators keep in mind as they explore the paths and roadblocks to peace?

If you attended, we created a transcript as a reference. It is a surprisingly interesting read. If you did not, choose your way of accessing the event. We have the webinar video, an audio podcast (great for drivetime) and the transcript available on-demand.

Thank you.

Raising Funds for Humanitarian Relief

Humanitarian relief fundraising thermometer

The webinar is also a fundraiser for humanitarian relief aimed at Ukrainian refugees. Estimates are that more than 12,000,000 have left their homes. The humanitarian crisis is real and severe.

So we are asking you – our friends and the entire WWI community of interest to help. All funds will go directly to provide shelter, food and care for these Ukrainian refugees. They need our help.

In memory of young Herbert Hoover and his humanitarian relief efforts in Belgium in WWI, Read the story by clicking above to understand why you should help today in 2022.

Canada and the Second World War at Sea


18 May @ 7:30 pm ET

CLICK HERE to register

Active on many fronts during the Second World War, the Royal Canadian Navy played its best-known and arguably most crucial role in helping to keep Allied shipping lanes open in the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Canadian merchant ships and merchant sailors transported vital supplies to Allied forces and populations around the world. On Canada’s home front, maritime losses – including civilian passengers – were felt across the country, while naval imagery appeared in fundraising and propaganda materials. Canadians built ships, weapons, and equipment, or were encouraged to provide support through their volunteer war, its events, and its consequences on the waters.
