Relatives of Dr. Donato Sansone

Black and white portrait of a group of women of various ages standing outdoors on a bluff. The women are relatives of Dr. Donato Sansone, an Italian Canadian doctor from Toronto who was interned during World War II.

While little information is known about Dr. Donato Sansone, it appears that at the time of his arrest he was single and living at 592 Spadina Ave. in Toronto. His doctor's office was also located at this address. Sansone had begun his practice a few years prior to being interned. He supported his parents and a sister. Sansone seems to have been involved in a number of organizations and run in the same circles as a number of other Italian Canadian men, such as Nicola Zaza, who were also interned during WWII. He was interned at Camp Petawawa and Camp Fredericton and was released after three years.
