Saint Louis: Ship of Fate                      

Our The little-known story of how Canada turned its back on German Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany just before the Second World War is told in stark detail in an exhibit titled St. Louis: Ship of Fate, now at the Yarmouth County Museum. Were the 907 passengers victims of official and unofficial anti-Semitism in Canada? The exhibit, featuring interactive touch screen technology, will awaken visitors to a dark chapter in their nation’s past and to the very real consequences of prejudice and discrimination. St. Louis: Ship of Fate will be at the Yarmouth County Museum from April 16th to June 29th. Free admission during the month of April and May.
