A lot comes to mind when I think of my heritage. Although my parents and I were born and raised in Montreal, I still have a strong connection to my Polish roots. Shortly after the Second World War, my grandfather Peter Neudorf, fled from his home in Poland, and came here as an adolescent; along with his mother and brother. During the war, he was kept in work camps, where he lost his father and sisters.

As I entered the Fort Chambly, old ghosts of people seemed to appear. I see some putting cannonballs in cannons and then light the wick. The sound is awfully loud! A tour guide then tells me about the history of the Fort Chambly… Fort Chambly was fist built in 1665. There were 4 forts. The first one was in wood. It was unfortunately too old so, they needed to replace it. They replaced it by another one in wood. It then accidentally burnt. Because the wood fort couldn’t protect itself from cannonballs and other explosives, they replaced the wood fort by a stone fort.
