Canadian Sikhs in WWI: The Forgotten Story Exhibition

Sharanjit Kaur Sandhra


My name is Sharanjit and I curate exhibitions at the Sikh Heritage Museum which is located in the National Historic Site Gur Sikh Temple in Abbotsford, BC ( I wanted to invite all Museum patrons, colleagues and historical buffs to come and visit our most recent running exhibition titled: Canadian Sikhs in WWI: The Forgotten Story which features the unknown story of the ten Canadian-Sikh Soldiers who served for Canada. The site of the Museum is also very significant as it is a National Historic Site, and the oldest still standing Sikh Temple in the Western Hemisphere. Our launch took place earlier this year in January; however, the exhibition is available for viewing all year long until December, 2015. We encourage you all to attend and for any additional information or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
