Visit, escape game and debate
Introduce your students to a little-known episode in Montreal’s history that dates back to World War II. From 1940 to 1943, the Fort on St. Helen’s Island became a detention centre for 400 Italian merchant seamen and civilians held as prisoners of war. Their living conditions are revealed during a guided tour of the buildings that features archival documents and testimonials from former detainees. Following the tour, students find themselves enclosed in one of the rooms of Camp S/43, and their challenge is to escape by following clues and finding keys and a tunnel map. At the end of the activity, they take part in a group discussion on the deprivation of liberty in times of war and draw similarities with today’s world.
