Double Threat Canadian Jews, The Military And World War II
October 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Book Presentation with Ellin Bessner
As Prime Minister Mackenzie King wrote in 1947, Canada’s 17,000+ Jewish servicemen and women faced a “double threat” — they were not only fighting against Fascism but for Jewish survival during Hitler’s Final Solution. At the same time, they encountered widespread anti-Semitism, and the dangers of being identified as Jews if captured. Author and academic Ellin Bessner will share her work in conversation with a Jewish war veteran.
This program is free and open to everyone.
