Honouring Residential School and Holocaust Survivors

The Jewish Federation of Edmonton and the Edmonton Public Library are proud to host Saskatchewan artist Carol Wylie and Saddle Lake Indigenous Educator Terri Cardinal to discuss their perspectives on survival and healing from the Holocaust and residential schools.

This event is in conjunction with Carol Wylie’s art installation, They didn’t know we were seeds, which will be on display at the Stanley A. Milner Library from September 29 through November 25, 2022. This large-scale portrait series honours those lost in residential schools and the Holocaust, as well as survivors and intergenerational survivors.

Wylie states in her project/artist statement: Both Indigenous survivors and Jewish survivors speak of a solidarity forged from the shared need to find ways of healing personal and generational trauma in the wake of horrendous abuse and attempted genocide, and to educate.

The event will be held in the Muttart Theatre on the basement floor of the Stanley A. Milner Library.

After the discussion, guests are invited up to the first floor PÎYÊSÎW WÂSKÂHIKAN for tea, coffee and desserts.
