On Friday, February 22nd at 7 p.m., at 152 Tannery Road in Lunenburg, Lexicon Books is pleased to sell books for the Lunenburg launch of “The Montreal Shtetl: Making Home After the Holocaust”, by Zelda Abramson and John Lynch (Between the Lines).

For more information, contact dbeers@ns.sympatico.ca. RSVP not necessary but appreciated.

Drawing on more than 60 interviews with survivors, hundreds of case files from Jewish Immigrant Aid Services, and other archival documents, The Montreal Shtetl presents a portrait of the daily struggles of Holocaust survivors who settled in Montreal, where they encountered difficulties with work, language, culture, health care, and a Jewish community that was not always welcoming to survivors.
