Dear Canada: Not a Nickel to Spare
The Great Depression Diary Of Sally Cohen Toronto, Ontario 1932
Coping with being poor during the Depression is hard enough, but Sally also has to contend with anti-Jewish sentiment when she ventures outside her familiar neighbourhood near Toronto’s Kensington Market. Her cousin Benny is always getting into scrapes or dragging Sally into his hare-brained schemes. But it’s also Benny who tries to open Sally’s eyes to the wider world, telling her about Hitler’s rise in Europe and urging her to stand up for herself when she runs across anti-Semitism.
