THE HIDDEN SIDE OF HISTORY
The history of Quebec is told differently during this unusual tour. The class is divided into two groups that follow different paths through the History and Memory exhibition. Using the primary sources of the Museum’s collection, the guides reveal new facts by adopting, in turn, the viewpoints of French colonists, British soldiers or First Peoples. In a quiz at the end, the students compare the various points of view adopted during the tour and become familiar with historical thinking.

INTERNMENT CAMP S/43: A VIOLATION OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS?
Between 1940 and 1943, the Fort of St.Helen’s Island, which is today the site of the Stewart Museum, was an internment camp for 400 Italian merchant seamen and civils held as prisoners of war. This guided tour of the historic buildings includes archival documents and the testimony of a former internee. It is followed by an immersive role-playing game during which students experience the living conditions of the internees. Together they reflect on the denial of civil liberties in times of war and draw links with contemporary situations.
