Let’s honour Lotta on World Refugee Day

“I experienced personally how much it hurts to be hungry. To be a refugee, to be without a home, to be without country, to be without friends. And this is something dreadful; you have no more roots, you have no one to turn to.” – Lotta Hitschmanova

June 20, 2018. Today is World Refugee Day, a time to reflect on the millions of refugees and displaced persons around the world.

Humanitarian Lotta Hitschmanova was a WWII refugee who by her actions in the 1940s to 1980s planted the seeds of compassion in her adopted country and indeed around the world. She was a refugee who changed Canada for the better.

To honour her legacy, let’s sign the petition to put Lotta on a commemorative stamp!

Thank you for supporting this and for sharing it with others.
