Join Maurice Switzer, a citizen of the Mississaugas of Alderville First Nation and a member of the Sons of Jacob congregation of North Bay as he explores the topic of genocide in the 20th century. Switzer is able to speak to this topic in a unique way as a descendant of both Residential school survivors and Holocaust survivors, these two traumas are central to Switzer’s personal history and experiences.
