Source Saturdays: “A Treasure for my Daughter” (1950) with Dr. Andrea Eidinger

Dr. Andrea Eidinger talks about “A Treasure for my Daughter” cook book from 1950 and how it helps us understand the ways a Jewish Canadian identity was crafted through food and tradition in the era of post-WW2 domesticity. 
Through this discussion, we are able to model how historians read primary sources to expand their analysis of the past.
