The Second World War transformed Canada and its place in the world. The outbreak of war in September 1939, following a decade of economic crisis and the rise of aggressive dictatorships, drew Canada into a second global conflict. Canadians ultimately served in virtually every theatre of operations, while the home front mobilized to support the war effort. This souvenir catalogue highlights the museum’s Second World War Gallery. From the powerful to the intimate, artifacts that have borne witness to the conflict—including artworks, weapons, uniforms, archival documents, and photographs—help show how the war affected Canada and Canadians.
