Over five hundred children from Halifax and Dartmouth were killed when the munitions ship Mont Blanc, blew up in the city's harbour on December 6, 1917. Hundreds more were injured, and many lost their families and homes. Survivors tells the story of seven children who survived the Halifax Explosion. All seven lived in Richmond, the northern part of Halifax close to the spot where Imo collided with Mont Blanc, causing the fore that ignited the tons of explosives in its hold. The book describes the children's family, school, and social life before the explosion: their activities on that day; their experiences of the explosion itself; and the difference it has made to their lives.
