Spend an afternoon at our biannual Montreal Holocaust survivor book fair. Meet survivors and their children who have written memoirs about their life experiences. Featured books will be available for purchase, and there will be brief readings from some of the authors.

Members of the public will be able to speak with the authors, purchase their books and visit the Museum free of charge.

Survivor Memoirs

Some survivors have published their memoirs with the support of their families, various publishers, and organizations like the Azrieli Foundation. Often, these works remain unknown, with limited circulation. Take this opportunity to meet the authors and discover their stories of survival during the Holocaust.
