THE 2024 TORONTO HISTORY LECTURE
Join us for the 13th Toronto History Lecture. This year’s lecture will be: Rebuilding the Body in WWI Toronto

Speaker: Kristen den Hartog

At the end of the First World War, wounded soldiers were coming home in huge numbers, and the country was scrambling for space to treat them all. By 1919, the Christie Street Hospital opened in a renovated cash register factory. Kristen den Hartog’s 2024 Toronto History Lecture gives us a glimpse of this fascinating place, of its diverse group of patients and staff, and the role it played in Toronto’s rich history.
