A civilian internee at Kananaskis Internment Camp No. 130 made this pipe during the Second World War. The pipe is made from the roots of trees cleared by the internees as part of their work detail. The side of the pipe bowl features a painting of a camp guard tower and fence in front of mountains. The bottom reads “KANANASKIS 1941”.
Kananaskis Camp held civilian internees (including “enemy aliens,” conscientious objectors, and political dissidents) at the start of the war and was later repurposed to hold combatant prisoners of war.
Paul Mulack, civilian internee No. 620, either made or collected the pipe to commemorate his incarceration at Kananaskis Camp. Mulack emigrated from Germany to Canada and was a naturalized citizen when he was interned after confessing to spying.
