Posted on Monday, September 9, 2019

Author: Pierre Anctil

A Reluctant Welcome for Jewish People

Voices in Le Devoir's Editorials, 1910-1947

Noted historian Pierre Anctil takes a deep dive into editorials devoted to Jews and Judaism in Quebec’s daily Le Devoir in the first half of the twentieth century. Long one of the most discussed historiographical issues in Canadian Jewish history, these editorials are of great significance as they are representative of the reaction of the nationalist Francophone elite to the Jewish presence in Montreal, to German Nazi State anti-Semitism and to the Shoah.

This book is published in English, translated from the original "À chacun ses juifs".
