Ports of Exile, Home Harbours
Bilingual | Open to all | Free | Accessible to all | Virtual Exposition | September 17th – October 17th
From Normandy in the occupied zone to Provence in the free zone, the exhibition Ports of Exile, Home Harbours reconstructs the fates of French and European Jewish men and women who were hunted down by Nazi occupiers and accomplices or by the Vichy regime and whose paths ended in deportation or exile in Canada. It also relates stories of resilience and hope in the long journey toward exile, reconstruction, reparations, and the restitution of stolen heritage.
This exhibition was organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, La Fabrique des Savoirs in Elbeuf, the Musée d’Histoire de Marseille, and the Montreal Holocaust Museum, thanks to the support of FRAME (French American Museum Exchange).
