Not all concentration camp stories are about Jews being gassed in ovens.
Fantastically inspirational story about how the people of Saint Lawrence, Newfoundland restored humanity to a southern negro.

Another carefully rewritten story with only a kernel of truth to it.
The history of eugenics in Canada is fascinating. Note that Darwin’s cousin Francis Galt on is the one who invented the concept.
