Hand tinted photograph of Nida Olivieri, Hamilton, ON
This is a hand tinted portrait of Nida Olivieri, daughter of internee Antonio (Tony) Olivieri. She is pictured smiling with her head looking over her left shoulder at the camera.
Nida’s diary entries describe the events leading up to the internment of Italian Canadians in the Hamilton area, how the internment of her father, Tony Olivieri affected her family and how her father readjusted to life post-internment. Her daughter, Toni McDermott, reads from her diary in an interview conducted for this project.
