Week of November 16, 2020

Tim Cook

Historian, Author and Curator, Canadian War Museum 

Based on his new book The Fight for History, historian Tim Cook explores how the Second World War has been remembered, forgotten and remade by Canadians for 75 years. While the Great War became a touchstone, the legacy of the Second World War has been a more complicated struggle in our collective memory as we came to terms with battles won and lost, our relationship to our veterans, and how the post-war period created profound shifts in our country.
