Montreal, December 2 , 2022– The English Montreal School Board Holocaust Education Program, made possible thanks to support from the Jewish Community Foundation of Montreal’s Nova Grants, continues.
On November 16 and December 1, students from two elementary schools – Honoré Mercier in St. Leonard and Gerald McShane in Montreal North- visited the Montreal Holocaust Museum with Spiritual and Community Animator. Mary Poullas. This was part of their moral and ethics education to better understand the history of the Holocaust and to bring attention to the ongoing problem of racism and antisemitism.
The students were moved by the stories told by the tour guides as they reinforced the message that we must all take steps to move forward without forgetting the past.
