Quotes

"It breaks your heart to see them that way when they come back" Snow said
"It’s an interesting chapter of history of the park, of Manitoba and Canada as well," Hartlen said. "Not a lot of people realize that German soldiers captured were actually brought over to Canada and put in National Parks to help with logging activities."
"When the Germans heard I was in England, they surrendered," the soon-to-be 90-year-old said, tongue firmly in cheek. "Then after that, the Japanese heard I was coming, and they followed suit."
"To get this postcard provided some comfort and solace for my grandparents and Bill was never forgotten about" Joseph said
