One Great History

The Battle At Market Square

May 18, 2021

Sabrina and Alex explore an uglier side of Winnipeg's history in this episode, namely, the rise of fascism and Nazism in Winnipeg in the 1930s. We discuss the rise and fall of the various parties (yes, there were more than one) and the countless ways Winnipeggers fought back against them, including a large riot called the Battle At Market Square.

Warning: this episode does contain discussion of antisemitism.
