Shawinigan

bâti de la ville de Shawinigan, Corporation culturelle de Shawinigan, July 2010 Many of the opulent uphill homes located in the somewhat secluded areas of Maple Street and Hemlock Avenue were occupied by more affluent people, many of whom happened to belong to the once vibrant English-speaking community, which at times comprised more than 30% of the local population. As industrial plants began operation eastward and northward, neighborhoods were established in Uptown Shawinigan. The emergence of these new districts was defined by and intertwined with the parish structure of the Roman Catholic Church. The Saint-Marc neighborhood, originally known as Village St-Onge, was annexed in 1902, extending the city limits to Dufresne Street. The uptown presence of the Canadian Carborundum and Alcan no. 2 plants favored the foundation the Christ-Roi neighborhood, which was annexed in 1925 extending the city limits to St-Sacrement Boulevard. The land now occupied by the section of town currently known as Shawinigan-Est was annexed in 1932. Uptown Shawinigan had its own fire station by 1922 and its own landscaped public park and swimming pool by 1940. Fabien LaRochelle, Shawinigan depuis 75 ans, Shawinigan, 1976 Westside near the Shawinigan River, the existence of the pulp and paper Belgo plant attracted enough residents to form a small, yet stable independent urban community called Baie-de-Shawinigan. Across the St-Maurice River, Shawinigan-Sud (then Almaville) maintained home-rule and developed as a residential hub. Great Depression Local prosperity (Prosperous) was interrupted by the Great Depression in the 1930s. Many plants were forced to temporarily reduce or stop their production, which left many residents jobless. Many families needed public assistance to survive. The City Council enacted a public works program to help families. The promenade along the St Maurice was a make work project during the depression. World War II World War II put Shawinigan Falls, and many others cities in Canada, back on the path of economic recovery (jobless recovery). During hostilities, the windows of local power plants were painted black to prevent any possible German (Germany) aerial (Air force) attack. The Shawinigan-based 81st Artillery Battery (62nd (Shawinigan) Field Artillery Regiment) was called to active duty during World War II. Its members were trained in Ontario and the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1944 and contributed to the Allies (Allies of World War II)' effort in the Normandy Landings in 1944-45, which led to the Liberation of France. J.J. Bellemare, 60 ans d'artillerie en Mauricie, Shawinigan, 1996 In 1948, a cenotaph, known as Monument des Braves (Monument des Braves, Shawinigan), was erected in downtown Shawinigan at the intersection of Fourth Street and Promenade du Saint-Maurice (then Riverside Street) near the Saint-Maurice River, in honour of soldiers who died during that conflict as well as World War I.

Important dates on ADM's (Société Nationale des Autoroutes du Maroc) website, visited 23 August 2008 This unexpected flood of Spanish immigrants, which soon caused overcrowding in the larger cities of Morocco, aroused uneasiness both among the Muslims, who feared an increase in the price of necessities, and among the Jews already settled there, who had hitherto barely succeeded in gaining a livelihood by following handicrafts and in petty commerce. In addition to this, unfriendly reception, the newcomers had to endure much from both great and small rulers eager for booty, as well as from the Moorish population (see Ibn Verga). l.c. pp. 185 et seq. In Sale, in 1442, many Jewish women were raped; and in Alcazarquivir, the Jews were robbed of all they possessed. Many died of hunger and some returned to Spain; ib. p. 226 most fled to Fez, where new trials awaited them. A terrible conflagration occurred in the Jewish quarter of that city, from which the historian of these events, Abraham ben Solomon of Torrutiel, then eleven years of age, escaped. ''"Sefer ha-?abbalah" in Neubauer, M. J. C." i. 112 et seq.'' A famine broke out soon after the fire, during which more than 20,000 Jews died in and around Fez. Notwithstanding these untoward events, the secret Jews or Marranos who were left in Spain and Portugal and who were determined to remain true to their faith under all circumstances so little feared the dangers and trials of removing to a foreign country that Manuel I (Manuel I of Portugal), King of Portugal (1495–1521), felt obliged to forbid the Jews to emigrate without express royal permission. This prohibition was contained in two ordinances dated respectively April 20 and April 24, 1499. Nevertheless, with the aid of money and the exercise of shrewdness many Marranos succeeded in escaping to Africa. A certain Gonçalo of Loulé was heavily fined because he secretly transported Neo-Christians from Algarve to Larache on the coast of Morocco.

The site lies within the urban perimeter of Larache, and about three kilometres inland from the mouth of the river and the Atlantic ocean. From its 80 metres above the plain the site dominates the marshes through which the river flows. To the north, Lixus is surrounded by hills which themselves are bordered to the north and east by a forest of cork oaks. Learning how to read and write He met someone who helped him learn how to read and write Classical Arabic, a strange language for him, and different from Moroccan Arabic and Berber (Berber languages) which he spoke. He decided to leave Tangier in 1956 (year of the independence of Morocco) and went to Larache, entering a primary school at the age of 21. He entered the ''Ecole Normale'' and became a schoolteacher. Back in Tangier in the 1960s, he continued to go to bars and brothels and began to write his personal story in Arabic with explicitness and detail. His explicitness about some of his sexually tinted experiences was largely condemned by religious and conservative forces in Morocco and abroad.
