Beginning in 1942\, Japanese Can adians forced from the West Coast began to leave the West Coast or the ca mps and move East. The migrants\, especially Nisei\, found a warm welcome in Montreal\, where they interacted closely with both English and French Canadians. The community organized to build lasting institutions\, inclu ding churches\, stores\, and a newspaper. While some Japanese Canadians l ater returned West\, many preferred to remain in Montreal\, where they we re able to become absorbed into the wider society. Like the larger city\, Montreal&rsquo\;s Japanese population remains notable for religious\, ge nerational\, and linguistic diversity.\nGreg Robinson is Associate Profes sor of History at l Universite du Quebec A Montreal and the author of <em> A Tragedy of Democracy: Japanese Confinement in North America</em> (Columb ia).\nRecent publications by Greg Robinson will be available at the event. \n SUMMARY:Speakers Series: Greg Robinson LEST WE FORGET: THE INTRIGUING HISTO RY OF JAPANESE CANADIANS IN QUEBEC URL:/en/events/2012/03/01/speakers-series-greg-robinson-lest-we-forget-the/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
