Finding light through the concrete of Canada's Holocaust Monument
In 2007, Laura Grosman, an 18-year-old university student in Ottawa learned that Canada was the only Allied nation that didn't have a monument to victims of the Holocaust. The granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, Grosman was incensed and began lobbying politicians. It was perplexing that Canada — a country that had played an integral role on the beaches of Normandy in 1944 and helped to end World War II — had no permanent marker for the civilian victims of that war. Ten years later, Canada's National Holocaust Monument — also known by its official title, Landscape of Loss, Memory, and Survival — finally opened to the public earlier this fall.
