Lifting the Silence: A World War II Canadian Bomber Pilot Reunites With His Past
Postmarked "France August 1946," this fragile letter bares the soul of a people beaten down by cruel times and extols their admiration and gratitude for Canada as a nation of spiritual and economic resources that helped them out so much during the war. Its final words resonate with seemingly prophetic significance as they impart a heartfelt expression of hope to someday again receive the downed pilot they had sheltered in 1942.
As if by Providence, this letter now serves to reunite Syd with his angel of the French Resistance 61 years later.
