White cane in hand, Karol Gamrot arrived with his family and guide dog Utta at
the Montreal Airport on January 18, 1951. He was one of eight blind refugees and
their families sponsored to come to Canada from camps across Europe in the early
1950s. Learn more about Gamrot’s story in an exhibit that explores the historic
challenges of migrants and new Canadians with disabilities, as well as the mixed role
of technology in their lives.
For more information, or to share with us your own stories of migration, inclusion,
ingenuity, human rights and disabilities, please come visit our display where a curator
will be in attendance in RB 2228 from 1:30-3:30 on May 25 during CARFMS 2018!
