World Refugee Week 2010

June 18, 2010

Arriving at National Archives for the World Refugee Week, Victor was pleasantly surprised to see that Sherry Tompalski a very talented artist had done a collage of Victor.  Day two of this 5 day event was hosted by Jayne Stoyles, Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for International Justice (CCIJ) and emceed by Jessica Solomon who worked as a war crimes lawyer for the UN when she decided to come home to Canada and pursue a career in comedy. Frankly, she thought it was time to get serious. (Yes, Victor and I weren’t sure if we should laugh or gasp; and laugh we did when later we enjoyed a chat with her.)  At this event Victor shared a piece of poetry he wrote in English, a couple of songs in English and a song which he wrote in Spanish.  We will be adding a link to YouTube of his performance.
