Dear Sadie – Loves, lives and remembrance from Ontario's First World War

From August 1 to 31, 2014 – from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Tuesdays through Sundays

Dear Sadie, currently on tour from the Archives of Ontario, makes a month-long stop at Toronto’s Parliament interpretive centre – where the Ontario Heritage Trust’s dynamic exhibit, Foundations & Fire: Early Parliament and the War of 1812 Experience at York, traces the history of the site from the 1700s to 2005.

Dear Sadie tells the stories of four diverse Ontarians, highlighting the impact that the First World War had on individual lives. It features a love story told through letters between a soldier and his sweetheart, the heartwarming correspondence between a frontline surgeon and the patients whose lives he saved, and the remembrances of a veteran who returned to the battlefields 20 years later.

The Archives of Ontario maintains an exciting travelling exhibits loan program that showcases the Archives' holdings.
