Sussie's Coat

A kind gesture by Second World War Canadian gunner Robert Elliott to a 10-year-old Dutch girl named Everdina (“Sussie”) Cretier turned into a beautiful and enduring love story. Come see the coat that symbolizes the national and personal bonds arising from Canada’s liberation of the Netherlands in the Second World War.
