Nova Scotia Provincial Heritage Fair 2013

TCSNAWinnerhe Nova Scotia Provincial Heritage Fair was held at Pier 21 on 31 May 2013 and, for the fourth year, the CNSA presented a prize for the best use of primary sources for a history project. This year’s recipient was Sarah Kittilsen for her project “She was There and She Survived” which focused on her great-grandmother’s experiences during the Holocaust. Sarah used a number of primary sources to complete her project inlcuding interviews with family members, a letter written by her great-grandmother about her experiences, family photographs, and an entry record related to her great-grandmother’s arrival in Canada. Sarah, a grade four student, also showed great respect for the original documents she consulted during her research when she explained that she had only brought a copy of her great-grandmother’s letter to the Heritage Fair in order to keep the original safe.

Congratulations, Sarah!
