School of Tourism and Hospitality Assoc. Prof. Geoffrey Bird has written, directed and produced twenty-seven vignettes for the documentary series War Memories across Canada. This spring, four more documentaries were added to the series, which is part of the War Heritage Research Initiative.

Here is an excerpt:

Each story relates a different impact the world wars have had on people, communities, and the nation. Many places featured in the documentary series are formally acknowledged as having a heritage directly related to war, but other sites only reveal their stories with the aid of local storytellers, whom Bird describes as ‘guardians of remembrance.’
