During the Second World War, thousands of Jewish refugees who had fled Nazi oppression were imprisoned in the United Kingdom and sent to work in prison camps in Canada. Using a large archive of never-released audio interviews, Those Who Heard & Those Who Saw tells the story of these prisoners and considers how their experiences connect to those of contemporary refugees.
