Letter to the editor, Globe and Mail, by Libero Sauro, April 23, 1941
Letter to the editor, Globe and Mail, by Libero Sauro, April 23, 1941, two pages.
Rev. Libero Sauro was arrested on September 7, 1940 and held at Don Jail before being transferred to Petawawa Internment Camp.
After his release, Sauro continued to help and advocate for other Italian Canadian internees and their families. In this letter to the editor, he recounts abuses he and other internees faced at the hands of the commanders of the Lansdowne Barracks while they were held there. He contrasts this with the organization and running of the Petawawa Internment Camp.
This document forms part of a collection of documents and other materials donated by the Sauro family.
