About the Book    Although, for sometime they were reported to be the third largest ethnic group in Canada and the first in the United States; little has been done to examine their identity and post World War II immigration history in Canada, and for that matter Toronto.
   The reason being the German-Canadians have staged the most impressive disappearing act of the 20th Century by a staggering amount of people in Canada. This book will seek to examine this fascinating history of assimilation and adaptation providing insights from German clubs, churches, associations, and many of the immigrants themselves. Along with this, it will share in some never-before-seen images of this large, yet elusive cultural group.
