Letter from Ruggero Bacci, to Minnie Bacci, March 25, 1943
Letter from Ruggero Bacci, to his wife Minnie Bacci, March 25, 1943. The letter is typewritten in Italian on standard issue paper and is sent from Fredericton Internment Camp.
In the letter Bacci asks that his wife ignore what others in the community may be saying about him. Bacci believes he had done nothing to be ashamed of, noting that he is interned because he is Italian and not because of any criminal activity. He believes an indifferent attitude to them from her is the best response. He recognizes that his children and wife are suffering due to his internment, but expects it to be temporary. He also reports that although the group hearing the objections to internment had been present at camp, he himself had not been interviewed. He mentions the expected release of the "doctor" but does not name him. Regardless, he is likely speaking of Donato Sansone. Bacci himself was released about 2 months after this letter was written.
