Ida was born in Sernick, Poland in 1926. She escaped the ghetto, joined the partisans and came to Canada.

This is the message she has left to her children and grandchildren.

Both the tragedies and joyous celebrations would bring tears to your eyes.

Dear children & grandchildren

I raised you with love and with hard work. And you should have a good memory of Mommy, whenever I go.

I'm really proud that I raised you good. I would be very happy that I would know that this I accomplished something I'm very proud of.


On behalf of my brother and sisters and all our children, thank you Alan for your sensitivity and skill. You have preserved a legacy. I hope you will continue to do so for others.
