From 1928 to 1971, a cavernous, shed-like building stood at the ready in Halifax Habour to welcme more than one million newcomers to Canada and to send close to 500,000 Canandian service personnel off to battle during World War II. Across its threshold came a tide of "home children" and "guest children", soldiers and war brides, refugees, and displaced persons, carried to and from its door by great ocean liners, military ships and small sailing vessels.
This is the chronicle of Pier 21. It is a story of hope and courage in times of change and turmoil, and one of the many chapters in the history of Canada.
