New Online Exhibitions

Library and Archives Canada is proud to present Oral Histories of the First World War: Veterans 1914-1918 and Faces of War. These new virtual exhibitions bring Canada's military history to life through the voices and faces of the men and women who served their country during wartime.


Oral Histories of the First World War: Veterans 1914-1918 offers insight into the horrors of the Great War through the first-hand accounts of Canadian soldiers and airmen. Digitized audio recordings capture the sentiments of Canadian veterans who experienced war in the trenches at the great battles of Ypres, the Somme and Passchendaele as well as in the air. Transcripts of these moving stories and a selection of remarkable photographs are also provided online.

Created in partnership with Veterans Affairs Canada and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Oral Histories is based on the CBC's radio broadcast In Flanders Fields, a series of one-on-one interviews with veterans, which aired during the 1960s.

Faces of War features photographs of men and women who served in the Canadian Forces in the Second World War. The photographs, taken from the Department of National Defence (DND) collection at Library and Archives Canada, depict every aspect of military life during this conflict.

Visitors to the site can search a database of almost 2,500 images from the DND collection, or view the photo galleries that represent each branch of the Canadian Forces: Army, Navy and Air Force.

Through Faces of War, Library and Archives Canada introduces an exciting new feature to its online exhibitions. In addition to viewing the comments of others, visitors can share memories online by adding their comments to any of the photographs in the Faces of War database.
