THE BATTLE OF VIMY

A Photo Presentation and Talk by Braden Murray

Thursday, November 9 | 7:00 pm

From April 9 – 12, 1917 , Canadians successfully attacked the German-held stronghold of Vimy Ridge in France. To mark the 100th anniversary of that historic World War I battle, Lake of the Woods Museum Educator Braden Murray will explain the epic battle, talk about why it was so important to Canadians, and why its significance echoes even today. Special interest will be paid to Braden’s recent trip to France to this past spring to attend the 100th Anniversary commemoration.

Please join us for this informative and engaging presentation.

** Note ** This is a repeat presentation of the talk Braden gave this past April.

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
