        Looking Back at the Halifax Explosion

        Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management is pleased to announce the
        launch of two new web-site products to commemorate the 85th anniversary
        of the Halifax Harbour Explosion (6 December 1917). Both are available
        on the Archives' web site,

        http://www.gov.ns.ca/nsarm/virtual

        The first, 'A Vision of Regeneration,' is a virtual exhibit showing how
        Halifax was rebuilt in the years immediately following the disaster.
        Built around 150 heritage photographs, maps, architectural plans and
        documents, with valuable background information, the exhibit is an ideal
        source for school projects--and a powerful visual memory of a city
        destroyed and rebuilt.

        The Archives has also partnered with the Halifax Foundation in a second
        web-site product, 'The Halifax Explosion Remembrance Book--A List of
        Those Who Died.' The first definitive listing for those killed in the
        disaster, it features a searchable database with detailed information
        for over 1900 casualties; more than 300 of these are newly-confirmed and
        identified victims.
