The collection of the Ontario Jewish Archives includes military records documenting the personal stories of the two World Wars. Featured here are a range of photographs, documents and artifacts that demonstrate the importance of family and community during a period of uncertainty. Not only do these records help reveal the more intimate details of war-time, they also illustrate how physical items have the power to evoke memory.
