VERNON, BRITISH COLUMBIA  – The multi-award-winning documentary, That Never Happened: Canada’s First National Internment Operationswill have its Vernon premiere at the Vernon Towne Cinema on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

The documentary, produced by Armistice Films Inc., recounts the forced internment of thousands of Ukrainians and other Europeans from1914 to1920. The Vernon internment camp was one of the largest and longest opened, one of only two that held women and children. Local residents are featured in this documentary including, Andrea Malysh, Lawrna Myers, Charolette Hanaghan and Michele Loughery.

The Vernon Premiere, a presentation of the Vernon & District Family History Society, reveals how public records were destroyed in 1954. Three decades later, researchers began the task of stitching together the story of this dark chapter in Canadian history.
