One War, Two Victories

One War, Two Victories

One War, Two Victories explores the experiences of Chinese Canadians who served in the Canadian Military and Volunteer Services and in Allied war efforts during the Second World War.

Though denied rights and subjected to widespread discrimination before the war, many Chinese Canadians volunteered for military service and related duties, helping to secure victory abroad and greater equality at home. The exhibition presents fascinating wartime stories of unforgettable men and women, and their remarkable contributions to Canada and to the Chinese Canadian community in war and in peace.


The exhibit is organized by the Chinese Canadian Military Museum Society in partnership with the Canadian War Museum.  It was made possible in part, through a grant from the Community Historical Recognition Program.
