Question 2
Julius and Assaf Farhood adapted well in becoming productive members of their community and country.

True. Over the years, Julius and Assaf Farhood learned the French language and adapted to the culture and society of their new home. But they did pay a price. To blend into the community they sacrificed their foreign-sounding names. Julius became George. Assaf became Charles. And while they never forgot their roots, the Farhoods gradually became Québeckers. They went on to found the Théâtre Chanteclerc, one of the earliest theatres in Québec to feature Francophone productions.
