Members of our local Scandinavian-Canadian community have contributed their recollections and family stories of civilian life during and around the Second World War. The stories will be summarized and displayed in print together with images. They bring to life the resilience and resourcefulness of people living under the stress of wartime conditions. Enjoy a two hour dramatic reading of these tales — inspiring, hair-raising, or humorous — with musical interludes by the Nordic folk band “Sammenspil”, Saturday April 12 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Date: Saturday and Sunday, April 12 and 13, 2014
Time: Displays: 11am to 4pm; Dramatic reading on Saturday April 12: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Scandinavian Community Centre
Cost: the exhibit is free; Entrance to this performance is by donation. Coffee is included.

This 2014 Nordic Spirit show continues the Cultural Society’s program of heritage collection and preservation. The past seven Nordic Spirit shows displayed primarily unpublished photos from our members’ private collections together with some text documenting their immigrant experience. Our new show begins a change in direction. We will continue to collect and preserve our shared history, but now we will examine its various aspects primarily by audio recordings with text presentations and publications.
Refreshments will be available daily.
