Double Threat: Canadian Jews, the Military and WWII
As Canada, and indeed the world, marked the Liberation of Holland and V-E Day in the spring of 1945, thousands of Canadian military personnel were still hard at work overseas, but some, in particular those of Jewish faith, had a new, humanitarian mission: rescuing the survivors of the Hitler’s Final Solution.
From helping to restore Jewish places of worship, to tracking down relatives of death camp prisoners, Ellin Bessner, author of "Double Threat: Canadian Jews, the Military and WWII", will share her research. at St. James' Anglican church.
