Statement of ResponsibilityHarold Troper and Morton Weinfeld.
Summary"Old Wounds documents forty years of wilful Canadian government inaction against the Nazi war criminals and collaborators who successfully found haven in Canada after World War II. The book recalls the efforts by Canadian Jewry to focus national attention on these Nazis, many of whom were alleged to be of eastern European origin, and explores the tensions this generated between Jews and others of eastern European heritage, especially Ukrainians." —Book jacket
