Description

For years, Pier 21 in Halifax served as the front door to Canada, the entryway through which more than a million immigrants passed. The radical transition they experienced produced a rich group of stories, presented here in French for the first time. Le Quai 21: La porte d’entrée qui a changé le Canada captures the hope and trepidation of these strangers in a new land. Le Quai 21 is a moving account of the human drama that unfolded at this historic site. Includes over fifty images of staff, volunteers, soldiers, children, war brides, refugees, and immigrants who were a part of the Pier 21 story. New French edition.
