(November 9, 2011) Mass Execution of Children Alleged
"My brother Rufus saw them take all those children and stand them up next to a big ditch, and then the soldiers shot them all and they all fell into that ditch. Some of the kids were still alive and they just poured the dirt in on top of them. Buried them alive."
This mass murder happened in 1943 – not in Nazi held Europe, but in Brantford, Ontario, on land occupied by the Canadian Army, at its Basic Training Camp Number 20.
These words were spoken today on the Native America Calling Radio program by Lorna McNaughton of Oshweken, Ontario: a survivor of the infamous "Mush Hole", the Brantford Mohawk Indian residential school, run by the Church and Crown of England until 1970.
Why were these children shot?
According to Lorna:
"The school was overcrowded just then. I was there, I saw the army bring in all these cots for lots of new kids who showed up from all over the country.
