September 22 2017
Eva Olsson

Students, parents and the general public will have the opportunity to meet Eva Olsson as she tours four CSPGNO high schools to speak of her experience as a Holocaust survivor.

At age 91, Eva Olsson is still actively committed to remembering the victims of atrocities committed against Jews during the Second World War and recalling lessons of history that should guide our times.
Eva Olsson holds several honorary doctorates, has written several books and has been giving presentations in schools for fifteen years. Her message promotes tolerance, compassion and the need to stand up against hate, themes that continue to resonate in many current events. Her story is also an example of resilience, a character trait that CSPGNO schools strive to develop in their students.

Monday, September 25: École secondaire Rivière-des-Français
