    Juin 13th 2014 / 01:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Tribute to 12 Quebec veterans with family origins in Normandy who came to liberate Normandy in 1944

    While the history of Normandy became linked to the history of Canada and Quebec during the 17th century period of French emigration, the Second World War was the time for another meeting, but in the opposite direction.  The Juno Beach Centre in Normandy is showing a temporary exhibition which sheds light on these two periods in the common history of Normandy and Quebec: a tribute to veterans from Quebec who trace their family origins to Normandy and who volunteered for the Canadian Armed Forces, taking part in D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.  An exhibition with the evocative title: There and Back…

  • Exhibition: From Horror to Art Ross Gaudreault cruise terminal (Dalhousie Area)
    Juin 13th 2014 / 01:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Exhibit of a rare collection of artifacts made by soldiers in the trenches.

    [...] These countless crafted and chiseled objects [...] in the fire of war [...] this inventive reuse of war material itself. Sockets, shrapnel, bullets, blades, rockets, cartridges, melted scrap metal: it is the military hardware which is thus diverted, reused, subverted we might say by these artists at the front. The work of their hands, the small details with which they create form and beauty out of material meant for killing [...].

    In the trenches, the time stretched out. [...] This time itself was therefore the subject of a most precious imaginable reuse. To use time, avoid loss and engulfment, reject this incredible waste of lives and hope that was the Great War. [...] These productions do not merely reflect manual dexterity and the infinite ingenuity of ordinary men. They are also protests against ugliness, against the foolishness of war, against the absurdity of sacrifice [...].

    Excerpts from the preface by Jean-Claude Guillebaud for "De l'horreur à l'art - l'art des tranchées dans la guerre 14-18" by Nicole Durand, Editions du Seuil 2006

  • Exhibition: Women and the First World War Ross Gaudreault cruise terminal (Dalhousie Area)
    Juin 13th 2014 / 01:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    This exhibition of photographs and artifacts of the era shows that the woman’s role was dominant on the patriotic level by supporting the morale of the troops, by actively engaging on the war front— mainly as nurses— by participating in the war effort required by each belligerent country. On the socioeconomic level, her activity in all sectors will demonstrate her expertise and allow recognition of her capabilities. Slowly but surely, women’s rights will progress.

    "If women working in factories stopped twenty minutes, the Allies would lose the war." General Joffre, Commander in Chief of the French armies, 1915

  • CONFERENCE: Women representation in war literature Ross Gaudreault cruise terminal (Dalhousie Area)
    Juin 13th 2014 / 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    It is undeniable that women played a crucial role and actively participated in the war effort during both world wars. Yet the war literature of the time paints an unflattering portrait of women. What could the misogynist nature of these texts be hiding? During this conference, we will see how the novelists of this period work the depictions of women. We will attempt to observe what this practice teaches us about the societies of the time and, more specifically, the psychology of the combatants.

    Speaker: Éric Boulanger
