|The Dominion Institute will launch a new web site designed by ecentricarts inc. on June 6 chronicling in multimedia the history of Canada's war veterans – timed to coincide with the anniversary of Canada's army and navy landing on Juno beach. Supported by a $200,000 grant from the Canadian Culture Online Program, The Memory Project Digital Archive stores the oral history and memorabilia of 300 Canadian veterans from WWII, the Korean War and the Cold War in a single database with related curriculum materials for teachers. The site, pulled together in only six feverish months, could be just the first step, say Institute staff, toward a broader project teaching Canadians about their military history.
