Description Rev. Charles Steinmetz talks about the discrimination and hatred that some immigrants faced living in Toronto during the 1930s. He describes the foundation of Hungarian House and Church activities. Rev. Steinmetz also talks about Communist activities during that time, and a Hungarian community newspaper that was started as well. He also talks about the Hungarian who served in Canadian Armed Forces during World War II. Rev. Steinmetz describes some of the activities undertaken by the Church during the war, and also the visit of Hapsburg Otto to Toronto. During the war there was a decision that Hungarian Church services in Toronto could only be in English. Rev. Steinmetz concludes by talking about the 'Displaced Persons' who immigrated to Canada after the war, and their search for jobs in Canada.
