The Christie Pits riots
An Audio Walking Tour
August 16, 1933. Six years before the start of the Second World War, Toronto the Good is suddenly ground zero for a series of brazen anti-Semitic acts... with devastating consequences. This is the story of one Jewish boy's personal journey through the old neighborhood, from storefronts and back alleys to the scene of the crime: the notorious Christie Pits ballpark itself. It is an engaging and dynamic story of innocence and experience; of redemption and hope.
Featuring the original song "Champions" by Measha Brueggergosman and Lennie Gallant
