Between 1939 and 1945, the Second World War was an international conflict fought on land, on sea and in the air. Canadian soldiers played a major role in the war, including many from Guelph. In this 75th anniversary year, we come together to remember their lives and reflect on their sacrifices.

Join us on Wednesday, November 18 at 12 p.m. for an online conversation that focuses on the Liberation of Holland from German occupation and traces Canada’s central role in ending the Second World War.

Hosted by Guelph Museums’ curator Dawn Owen, History Bites welcomes Julie Allen from Faces to Graves (Groesbeek, in the province of Gelderland, the Netherlands), Karen Hunter from In Our Fathers’ Footsteps (Guelph), and Sue Pynenburg (Rockwood), niece of Trooper Clarence Oliver James of Guelph, who lost his life in a pivotal battle in the Rhineland on February 26, 1945.
