Feldman family

Administrative HistoryDavid (b. 1926, Siedlec, Poland) and Regina (b. 1931, Będzin, Poland) Feldman, both survivors of the Holocaust, immigrated to Canada in 1948. David was brought over as part of the Tailor Project, and eventually found work in Vancouver as a denturist. Regina worked in the alteration department of Cordell's Ladies Wear, and later helped children and the sick in the Jewish community in Vancouver, and raised funds for Israel. They met at a Jewish Community Centre in Vancouver, were married in 1950, and had three children: Alan (who passed away at age two), Gail (also deceased) and Gary. The Feldmans travelled back to Russia and Poland to visit in later years. Both provided Holocaust testimonies to the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre.
