Musée de l’Holocauste Montréal - 4 étages


Recommended Posts

Un projet qui fera disparaitre un autre stationnement qui défigure ce quadrilatère depuis des décennies. Il réparera en même temps la trame urbaine sur les deux rues concernées, un plus pour l'aspect paysager du secteur. Finalement un petit musée qui déménagera de son adresse actuelle, Chemin de la Côte Ste-Catherine pour s'installer sur le boulevard St-Laurent, où la communauté juive a pris son élan au niveau des affaires et qui perdure encore aujourd'hui. À noter que le musée fera l'objet d'un concours architectural https://museeholocauste.ca/fr/

Finalement un peu d'histoire https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancien_quartier_juif_de_Montréal

'We are their voices': New Holocaust museum to open on Main

The use of Nazi symbols in anti-vaccine trucker convoys has demonstrated the need to increase awareness, Quebec's minister responsible for anti-racism says.

Battered by the pandemic and the departure of iconic businesses, St-Laurent Blvd  will get a major boost with the construction of a new $80-million home for the Montreal Holocaust Museum.

The new location at 3535 St-Laurent, currently a parking lot south of Prince-Arthur St., is in the heart of what was once the city’s vibrant Jewish neighbourhood, noted museum president Richard Schnurbach.

“It is where it all began for the Jewish community, and it has such historical significance,” he said.

Construction will begin in 2023 and the new museum will open in 2025, thanks to a $20-million subsidy from the Quebec culture ministry, $15 million from the Azrieli Foundation and other funding from private and public sources.


The museum launched an international architectural competition last fall and will choose a firm to design the new building in July.

“It will transform the landscape of the area. It will help to revitalize downtown and so we feel we’re really contributing to our city in a significant way as we all hope eventually to come out of this pandemic,” said Dorothy Zalcman Howard, co-president of the new museum project.
