Description

Celebrate Harmony Day and Australian multiculturalism with us. Journey around the world, visiting people from different countries over coffee and traditional afternoon tea - visit one or visit them all!

12.30pm ~ Japan/Canada:

Meet Paula! Paula grew up in Canada surrounded by her mother’s close knit Japanese Canadian family and spent many weekends in her maternal grandparents’ house with extended family where there was an eclectic blend of Japanese and Canadian foods and traditions.

Despite the amount of time they spent together, Paula had no idea about her grandparents’ dark past and the hardship they suffered at the hands of the Canadian government during the Second World War until she learned in high school of the Japanese Canadian internment. It was a source of great shame for many in the community. Though they were separated for four years during the internment and had to start over with nothing, her grandparents eventually managed to thrive, own their own home and raise six children successfully in Ontario.
