In 1948, a small ship carrying Estonian refugees arrived at Pier 21 inHalifax. In this absorbing work, anthropologist Lynda Mannik analyzesthe refugee experience through the photographic record of those whomade that harrowing voyage. Drawing on a collection of photographstaken during the voyage and at Pier 21, Mannik asks survivingpassengers to describe their journey, their reception in Canada, and towhat extent the photos reflect their experiences as they remember them.The photographs in the SS Walnut collection, she argues, bearwitness to the refugee experience even as the meanings attached to themhave changed over time and in shifting contexts.
