Summary"In 1986 Rabbi Victor Reinstein, of Congregation Emanu-El in Victoria, British Columbia, suggested that the personal testimonies of the community's Holocaust survivors be recorded. I volunteered my services, located fifteen survivors, and over a period of nine months, recorded their histories. The records I collected were from men and women who, at the time of the Holocaust, had been anywhere from five years old to their early twenties. Nationals of Germany, Poland, France, Holland and Belgium, they endured slave labour. They lived under the threat of murder and were witnesses to the murders of their relatives and neighbours." —Rhoda Kaellis, Introduction, page v
