THE LEGACY OF THE WINNIPEG GENERAL STRIKE
Steve Szczerbanowicz was one of two workers killed on Bloody Saturday June 21st, 1919. He was burried without a gravestone on the 29th of June. Through the offorts of two members of the MayWorks Board and the musical contributions of many local musicians two concerts raised the funds to cover the cost of this gravestone.
Join us for the unveiling of this memorial stone, 96 years later, to pay your respect and honour the memory of this victim of Bloody Saturday.
