A treasure trove of photos from a Japanese-Canadian internment camp in southeastern British Columbia during World War II, has been donated to the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.
The photos were donated by Carla Ayukawa, whose mother was interned as a teenager, and depict what everyday life was like for those in the camp.
Ayukawa married, had children and earned a doctorate after being released from the camp. She died in 2013 at the age of 83.
