In partnership with Alliance Française Toronto, we are hosting a French conference titled Question du genre pendant et après la Shoah: récits de survie et d’immigration au Canada. Montreal-based scholars Deborah Barton and Rémy Besson will discuss gender and issues relating to resistance, sexual violence, the portrayal of genocide and immigration. The presentations will include examples from our Holocaust survivor memoirs. These books will be made free for participants. Hope to see you there!
