Montreal Museum’s Day

Did you know that after the Second World War, Montreal welcomed the third-largest proportion of Holocaust survivors in the world? These survivors are the driving force behind the creation of the Montreal Holocaust Museum, and their testimonies are present throughout the exhibition. Come meet them on Montreal Museums Day!

Holocaust Survivor Testimony

Visit the Museum to meet Holocaust survivors, and hear about their personal experiences during WWII. Closer to the event, we will announce which survivor is speaking at which time.

Our Permanent Exhibition

The Montreal Holocaust Museum tells the story of Jewish communities before, during and after the Holocaust. Through the life stories of Montreal survivors, the Museum invites visitors to reflect on the destruction caused by prejudice, racism and antisemitism.

Montreal Museums' Day

This event is organised by the Board of Montréal Museum Directors and is presented by Quebecor, in collaboration with the Société de transport de Montréal.

Paint Animation

Montreal artist Chlag Amraoui is a native of Aurès, a region of North Africa. Driven by his impulse and his inner energy, he uses painting to shatter his emotions as a gesture of deliverance and beauty that questions the soul, history and time.

He will be doing 20 minute representations at the Museum at 11:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 1:00 pm.
