Statue to Honour Wolfville Woman who Aided Allies in WW2

A statue honouring a local woman who help shield allied airmen from the Nazi’s during the second world war was unveiled in Wolfville on Friday. Mona Parsons was born in Middleton and raised in Wolfville before marrying a dutchman and moving to the Netherlands before the second world war. During the Nazi occupation she was caught providing aid and shelter to Allied airmen downed behind enemy lines. A Nazi court sentenced Parsons to death before an appeal converted her sentence to life in a german labour camp. She escaped following an allied attack on the camps in 1945. A statue depicting Parson’s joy over the liberation of netherlands was unveiled in front of Wolfville’s post office during a ceremony on Friday.
