Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Silberman Abella

“You cannot be born in the shadow of the Holocaust to two Jews who survived it, without an exaggerated commitment to the pursuit of justice.” 

Justice Abella was born in a DP camp in Germany in 1946 and her family came to Canada as refugees in 1950. She is the first refugee, the first Jewish woman and the first child of Holocaust survivors appointed to the Supreme Court in Canada. She is an international expert on human rights law, holds 39 honorary degrees and is a passionate speaker about the role the Holocaust has played in her life. 


Liberation75 is the world's largest international event to mark the 75th anniversary of liberation from the Holocaust.

Join thousands of others as we commit to fighting antisemitism and continuing Holocaust education and remembrance.


Liberation75 was originally planned for May 31-June 2, 2020 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Due to COVID-19, Liberation75 will occur virtually from May 4-9, 2021.
