The travelling exhibition from the Montreal Holocaust Museum, “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.
