Exhibition: One War, Two Victories【一場戰役,兩個勝利】






























One War, Two Victories explores the experiences of Chinese Canadians who served in the Canadian Military and Volunteer Services and in Allied war efforts during the Second World War.
Though denied rights and subjected to widespread discrimination before the war, many Chinese Canadians volunteered for military service and related duties, helping to secure victory abroad and greater equality at home. The exhibition presents fascinating wartime stories of unforgettable men and women, and their remarkable contributions to Canada and to the Chinese Canadian community in war and in peace.

The exhibit is organized by the Chinese Canadian Military Museum Society in partnership with the Canadian War Museum.  It was made possible in part, through a grant from the Community Historical Recognition Program.

大溫哥華中華文華中心文物館于六月二十八、二九日 (週五) 七月五,六日 (週五) 延長開放至晚七點,配合<一個戰役,兩個勝利> 展覽。歡迎所有觀眾與遊客及瀏覽華埠夜市的觀眾來參觀。其它時間文物館周二至周日早11時至晚5時開放。

溫哥華唐人街復興計劃的目標是保存其特有的歷史遺產繼而將新的生命力注入這一歷史和文化豐富的社區。大溫哥華中華文化中心、華裔軍事博物館和華埠商會在今年夏季舉辦系列活動以大力支持這一復興計劃。

今年的華埠夜市已經於六月一日啓動,其後有華裔軍博物館的【一場戰役,兩個勝利】展覽開幕。此展覽從2012年五月至2013年二月已經在渥太華的加拿大戰爭博物館展出。現在,它回到溫哥華唐人街供觀眾參觀。

在展覽進行的同時,華裔軍事博物館邀請了美國塔思克吉飛行員軍人來參觀。這些非洲裔美國軍人在第二次世界大戰中和加拿大華裔軍人一樣受到了歧視。溫哥華是第二次世界大戰中華裔報名參軍人數最多的城市之一。他們克服歧視的意志力是值得被歷史記住的。美國塔思克吉軍人實在馬丁·路德·金博士發起的人權運動之後才最終得到在美國社會中的平等地位。在加拿大,我們的華裔軍人也為所有加國華人贏得了加拿大公民權。

【一場戰役,兩個勝利】圖片展記錄了加拿大華裔軍人的歷史遺產。展覽於2013628日至730日在位於溫哥華唐人街的大溫哥華中華文化中心文物館展出。

敬請各界朋友在2013628日(星期五)下午3:00點整在唐人街加華紀念碑前(哥倫比亞街夾奇花街)參加簡短的紀念儀式。之後敬請光臨中華文化中心文物館(溫哥華哥倫比亞街555號)參觀【一個戰役,兩個勝利】展覽並瀏覽華埠夜市。
