Administrative/Biographical HistoryJannushka Jakoubovitch (b. June 20, 1933 in Paris, France) is a Canadian Holocaust survivor of French origin. Born to Jewish parents – her father from Poland and her mother from France – she spent her early years in Paris before mounting political pressure forced her parents to send her and her siblings to safe houses operated by the French Resistance in the countryside. After the war she travelled extensively, working for the United Nations and other international NGOs, before immigrating to Canada. Jannushka Jakoubovitch is a dedicated student outreach speaker and VHEC Life Fellow recipient in recognition of her special contributions to Holocaust education and remembrance.
