Event description
In-person Holocaust Survivor Testimony from Sol Nayman, born in Stoczek Wegrowski, Poland

About this Event

Sol Nayman was born in Stoczek Wegrowski, Poland on November 5, 1935. In September 1939, when the Nazis attacked the town, Sol and his family fled to the nearby forest. They later ended up in Bialystok which was under Soviet control. They were then deported to a forced labour camp in Syktyvkar, deep in the Soviet Union. In 1944 they were shipped to a different labour camp in the Ukraine.

In 1948, Sol and his family were admitted to Canada, landing at Pier 21, together with other Holocaust Survivors as part of the “Tailor Project” and settled in Montreal. Sol and his family moved to Toronto in 1969.

Presented in partnership with The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and the Atlantic Jewish Council.

This program is part of the Atlantic Jewish Council's 16th Annual Holocaust Education Week, happening in Halifax, NS, from October 30 to November 7, 2019, which is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Azrieli Foundation. All programs are free of charge and open to the public. For 2019 Holocaust Education Week program and schedule updates, please visit www.HolocaustEducation.ca
