Official dedication of Elie Wiesel Park to take place on Friday

The official dedication ceremony for Elie Wiesel Park  at the corner of Cavendish and Kildare will take place on Friday, November 3 at 10 am.

Elie Wiesel sign

Wiesel, a renowned Holocaust survivor, died in July 2016 at the age of 87.  Wiesel was sent to Auschwitz and Buchenwald during the Holocaust. He wrote dozens of works championing the human spirit. Throughout his life he fought for peace, human rights and simple human decency. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, recounted his family being sent to the Nazi concentration camps in his first book, "Night," which was published in France in 1958.

The park was completed last fall after I undertook extensive consultation with local residents. We will formally unveil the new sign in the company of many students. Mayor Mitchell Brownstein will deliver opening remarks, followed by Liberal Member of Parliament for Mount Royal Anthony Housefather, D'Arcy McGee Liberal MNA David Birnbaum, former Federal Justice Minister Irwin Cotler, Rabbi Reuben J. Poupko from Beth Israel Beth Aaron Congregation and Montreal Holocaust Memorial Museum Vice-President and survivor  Eva Kuper.
