Searching for Canadian Jews whose families were
denied entry into Canada during WW2
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in conjunction
with Radio-Canada is producing a sixteen part documentary
series on the history of Canada. The series is called
Canada: A People's History and has already premiered
on Sunday, October 22nd. The series chronicles the lives
of Canadians >from all walks of life through personal testimonies.
In the process of preparing the documentary on WW2, one
of our segments would include the government's attitude towards
European Jews during the war years. We turn to the Jewish
communities throughout Canada in helping us find people
who have personally experienced or know of families whose
relatives >from Europe were denied access into Canada during the war.
