“And in 1948, I came to Canada” The Holocaust in Six Dates:

A production of The Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre

Open from July 22, 2017 - November 16, 2017

The travelling exhibition, “And in 1948, I came to Canada”: The Holocaust in Six Dates raises awareness about the genocide of the Jews by presenting its history and reflecting on the impacts of racism and discrimination in our society. It commemorates the victims of the Holocaust and honours the survivors who made Canada their new home.

The exhibition looks at the history of the Holocaust and the Second World War through six key dates, as well as Canada’s reaction to these events. It raises questions about Canada’s involvement in the conflict, revealing the government’s inaction towards Jewish refugees. The exhibition also explores survivors’ immigration and settlement in the post-war years.
