Jewish Canadians "are understandably feeling vulnerable" and there have been calls "to protect synagogues and other places that are at risk of hate-motivated crimes", Trudeau said during his parliamentary address.

Gordon said history continues to repeat itself and even today "many people are discriminated against, starving or running for their lives".

"The whole premise of the St. Louis was the culmination of bigotry and hatred that is rearing its ugly head again and I think this is a very poignant part of this", said Eva Wiener, 80.

"We were surrounded by a group of thugs who said, 'Jews are not allowed here, get out.' And we ran and they caught up and they beat us up and they stole our money and they left us in a pool of blood".

Protection: 'I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I know 150 per cent that I would give up my life for my children because it's what my goal is", she said.

The prevalence of anti-Semitism in contemporary society showed itself nearly two weeks ago when a gunman killed 11 worshippers inside a Pittsburgh synagogue simply because they were Jewish, Trudeau said.

"Anti-Semitism directly affects Jews, but it doesn't only affect Jews and it's not a Jewish problem".

The ship sailed to Canada, where then-prime minister William Lyon Mackenzie King rejected their asylum request.

In May 2016, six months after taking office, he stood in parliament to apologise to the descendents of hundreds of passengers of the Komagata Maru, a Japanese vessel carrying Sikh, Muslim and Hindu migrants who were refused entry into Canada under 1914 immigration laws.

The St. Louis departed Germany in May 1939 with more than 900 Jews aboard, hoping to find refuge from Adolf Hitler's Nazis and the policies that stripped them of their rights and fuelled violence against them and their businesses. As Nazi Germany expanded its reach, about 254 were captured and killed in death camps, The New York Times reports.

"By issuing this apology, it is my honest hope that we can shine a light on this painful chapter of our history and ensure that its lessons are never forgotten". The Twitter account was a protest against President Donald Trump's travel ban, which targeted refugees.

Trudeau has been keenly repenting of Canada's historic sins for some time now. Antisemitism is still far too present.

"Acknowledging moments in our history when Canada failed our ideals will help us remain vigilant in upholding those values today", CIJA said in a press release.
