During World War II, 25 civil and military internment camps were active in Canada. Camp S/43, installed in the British military structures of St. Helen’s Island (1824-1870), was operational between July 1940 and November 1943. At the beginning, the camp imprisoned 349 Italians from Great Britain. The conference, followed by a guided tour, covers the reason for their detention and their life conditions in Camp S/43.
