Exhibition – Courage in Chaos: the Dieppe Story

This exhibition consists of six large panels that measure 6 feet high and 8 feet long.  The panels are flat, lightweight and easy to set up. We can bring them to your school, or ship them by UPS.

The exhibition, the second in our series on WWII, delves into one of the most tragic events for Canadians in the Second World War. The exhibition also takes a look at how the Raid affected those at home in Canada and what happened after the war. Accompanying the exhibition is a short animated video that tells the story of Dieppe through the eyes of one if its heroes.
