Curating Difficult History
About this webinar

About this presenter
Andréa Shaulis is the Curator at the Montreal Holocaust Museum and has been responsible for its collection since 2016. She first joined the Museum as a docent in 2009 and has an extensive knowledge of its collection and permanent exhibit. Her work with the collection enables her to build relationships with donors and preserve family histories. She is particularly interested in the unique individual stories within the collection, as well as the lesser-known histories such as those of Jewish refugees interned in Canada during the war or of the political activism of Holocaust survivors in their adoptive country.
