Thomas Pick will tell his own family story, starting with his Jewish parents, who fled Czechoslovakia before the war and, upon arriving in Sherbrooke, hid their Jewishness and brought up their two sons as Christians. At the end of his talk, he will show an 18-minute film, made by one of his cousins, about growing up as a Christian and hiding her Jewish heritage. Thomas says that the movie could have been about him.
