This series of three webinars will provide support for educators to examine historical cases of antisemitism in Canada, while making connections to current events.
Explore Canada's restrictive immigration policies during the years 1933 - 1948, which lead to the refusal to accept Jewish refugees from Europe during the years 1933–1948. We will study Canada’s Universe of Obligation and the antisemitism that led to these policies. We will specifically examine how Canada turned away the MS St Louis, a boat of Jewish refugees attempting to escape Nazi Germany.
In this webinar, you will:
- Learn about Canada’s restrictive immigration policy during the years 1933–1948
- Acquire classroom activities for bringing the history of the MS St. Louis into your classroom
- Examine the recent apology made by Prime Minister Trudeau for the MS St. Louis
This webinar will take place 4:30–5:30 PM EST.
