After its European premiere at The United Nations. «That Never Happened» will have a cross-Canada Theatrical release in select cities. This is unheard of for most Canadian Films let alone a Documentary. Please join us and watch this film in the Cinema as it was meant to be seen.

Synopsis:
THAT NEVER HAPPENED reveals the story of Canada's first national internment operations between 1914 — 1920, when over 88,000 people were forced to register and more than 8,500 were wrongfully imprisoned in internment camps across Canada, not for anything they had done but because of where they came from.

In 1954 the public records were destroyed, and in the 1980s a few brave men and women began working to reclaim this chapter in history and ensure future generations would know about it.

Director Ryan Boyko will be in attendance for a Question and Answer after the Film.

Extra Information:
8,579 so-called «enemy aliens», including women and children, were interned, including Ukrainians, Alevi Kurds, Armenians, Bulgarians, Croatians, Czechs, Germans, Hungarians, Italians, Jews, Ottoman Turks, Polish, Romanians, Russians, Serbians, Slovaks, and Slovenes, among others, of which most were Ukrainians and most were civilians.
