Land of triumph and tragedy : voices of the Italian fallen workers : a century of Italian immigration to Canada : immigrants who made it and those who perished trying

Paola Breda (Author), Marino Toppan
Compiled after decades of research by Toppan, this new volume includes contributions from across the country, from scholars of Italian-Canadian history and the families of the fallen themselves. This ground breaking new book includes profiles of those in the Italian community in Canada who triumphed with incredible successes, those who died in tragic circumstances, as well as in-depth studies on immigration patterns, labour history, socio-adaptive patterns, labour action, strife and hardships experienced, and many more themes in the Italian-Canadian identity. Land of Triumph and Tragedy is a sequel to the creation of the Italian Fallen Workers Memorial Wall, unveiled on 28 April 2016 at Villa Charities
