abstract
This video revisits the MS St. Louis incident through the testimony of survivors and witnesses and the findings of eminent historians, and using original footage and documentation. This short film reveals why our government acted the way it did, and helps us understand what led to a refusal that casts a dark shadow on Canada’s humanitarian record.
