About the event

The annual CSHS luncheon was held at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church hall in Toronto on Sunday April 16, 2023. The celebration of the 20th anniversary was an overwhelming success with almost 300 people in attendance. Professor Anne Urbančič reviewed the humble beginnings stressing the mission and vision with Mr. Stan Kranjc as president.  In recognition of his many years of dedication to the historical society, Mario Ulcar and Anne Urbančič presented Stane Kranjc with a plaque.  ​

After lunch,  Mr. Blaž Slamič, Chargé d'Affaires at the Embassy of Slovenia in Ottawa, presented the CSHS with an award recognizing their 20th anniversary,  signed by Matej Arčon, Government Minister for the Office of Slovenians Abroad and in the World. The program continued with the presentation of the second documentary in the Exodus series: Life in the Camps. This documentary portrays the determination and resiliency of the Slovenian refugees in the camps after WWII.

At the conclusion, all guests who were in the camps in Austria and Italy were invited to join in a group picture.

​The CSHS is planning to host a picture/document sharing event for all who might have information about Slovenian refugees after the camps.  This will be the focus of the next documentary - Coming to Canada, scheduled to be shown in 2024. Everyone is welcome.  For more information please contact Mario Ulcar, president CSHS. marioulcar@gmail.com
