presents: Ellin Bessner:
"The Untold Stories of Canada's Jewish Fighters in Uniform in WWII"
Canadian author and journalist Ellin Bessner will discuss the methods
which she used to research for her new book, "Double Threat: Canadian Jews,
the Military, and World War II." Six years of research led to her documenting
the experiences of more than 17,000 Canadian Jews who donned a uniform in WWII.
Until now, Canada hasn't properly acknowledged their important contribution to the
Allied victory in the Second World War. They fought >from Dunkirk to D-Day
and beyond - they weren't only fighting for freedom and democracy but also,
to save their own people >from Hitler's Final Solution.
