National Treasure #163: Laura Grossman

On 27 Sep, the Prime Minister and Heritage Minister Jolie helped to unveil Canada’s National Holocaust Monument, across the street from the War Museum.

If I hadn’t seen CBC’s Power and Politics show that day, I might not have known about the young woman behind it: Laura Grossman, granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor.  

Ten years ago, at 18, she launched a campaign to get the monument approved and built.

Did she do it all by herself? Of course not.

Would it have happened without her?  No.

Here’s the podcast link. Laura’s interview starts at about 1:20:45.

If you Google her, though, the clip might still come up in their Twitter or Facebook feeds.

  1. So much of history is down to one man or one woman leading the way. “History is biography.”
