Ellen Bessner will talk about her book “Double Threat, Canadian Jews, the Military, and World War II” at the Historical Society

Event Date: 
Monday, April 15, 2019 - 7:30pm

In her new book, Ellin spent six years researching, and travelling, and interviewing over 300 veterans and their families, to tell the untold stories of how and why Canada’s Jewish community sent 17,000 men and women in uniform to defeat Hitler and the Axis in the Second World War.

It is a story that has never been comprehensively told before and fills an important gap in the publicly known accounts of how a country of volunteers helped to win the war.

All are welcome to attend. Bring a friend or two! Guest Fee $5.00

Yearly memberships are available $40.00 for Family & $25.00 Single

Light refreshments are served following the meeting.
