On Sunday, May 16 at 2:00 p.m. in Parc Jeanne-Mance (corner of Park and Mount-Royal), join representatives of Saint Paul University, Dawson College, and the Montreal Holocaust Museum for a special walking tour based on the award-winning audio guide Refugee Blvd. Bring your own headphones and mobile device! The audio tour recreates the postwar social worlds of child Holocaust survivors and the storied neighbourhood that received them.

Situated in the Plateau, along Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Jeanne Mance Street, and Esplanade Avenue, the walk’s 1.5-hour narrative, developed in collaboration with survivors themselves, takes participants to the places that were central to survivors’ early experiences in the city. Meet the team that developed this remarkable project and learn more about this chapter of Montreal’s history.

PARTNERS : Festival d’Histoire de Montréal, Saint Paul University, Dawson College, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
