Summaries of interviews
Interviews conducted in 1991 as an exercise for a Jounalism class, University of Regina, organized by assistant professor Jill Spelliscy, and donated to the Saskatchewan Archives. This project focuses on Chilean refugees who came to Canada during the 1970s and settled in Saskatchewan. The interviews examine their lives in Chile, the conditions that led to the military coup in 1973 and the circumstances that forced the interviewees to leave Chile and why they came to Canada. The interviews also chronicle the expectations, the obstacles and the day to day stories of their lives here in Regina. Efforts were made to obtain a cross-section of stories and experiences including those of people who were very young when they fled Chile with their families.
