Safe Haven: Canada and the 1956 Hungarian Refugees

November 1, 2016 - February 1, 2017

Safe Haven commemorates the 60th Anniversary of the resettlement in Canada of approximately 38,000 Hungarian refugees, who fled the Soviet invasion of their homeland in 1956. Many Hungarian individuals and families entered Canada through Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The exhibit briefly explores the events that led Hungarians to leave their country and the role of the Canadian government, community organizations, and individual sponsors in helping them begin new lives in Canada. The exhibit features archival images and a piece of artwork from the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21’s collection.

Safe Haven will be on display in the Hall of Tribute.
