Suzanne Pasternak’s “The Halifax Explosion & the Boston Tree”

Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 2 PM – 4 PM EST

The Back Room Neilson Store Museum and Cultural Centre

5220 Front Road Stella ON K0H 2S0

Suzanne Pasternak will present a talk “The Halifax Explosion and the International Emergency Response…a Love Story”, followed by an audio screening of her docu-drama “The Story of the 1917 Halifax Explosion and the Boston Tree”.

“It is important in these times to remember that humanity holds deep reservoirs of goodness, kindness and the spirit to do the right thing,” says Suzanne. “It is also important to remember and honour the unshakeable friendship between Canada and the United States. In the face of disaster, we are always there for each other. Our hydro guys were in California in the aftermath of the devastating fires. 911, Katrina, Fort McMurray – both countries lend a helping hand across the border.”

This is the story told here. In the face of the biggest man-made explosion before Hiroshima, an epic and noble humanitarian rescue mission came to the aid of the stricken city from Boston. This was followed by a global response to save the people of Halifax.

Admission is by goodwill donation.
