BeschreibungA child survivor, a child of survivors and a grandchild of a survivor, Sidney Zoltak is all these things. His story about a family that struggled and endured, the generosity of those who saved them against all odds, and a vow never to forget is a remarkable journey through the Holocaust into a rich and full life. At eight, Sidney loses a middle class home and goes from the slow death of the ghetto into the terror of hiding in forests, barns and finally, a hole in the ground provided by a Polish family farm. But when war ends, there is no going back. We follow the Zoltak family as they make their way to Italy where young Sidney encounters a generosity of spirit that helps to heal war's wounds and prepares him for life in Canada. Sidney Zoltak's chronicle is a lesson in the importance of honouring your story for the generations to come.
PortraitBorn in Poland, Sidney Zoltak was eight at the outbreak of WW II but survived with his family intact. Following two years in Italy as a refugee, Sidney and his mother came to Montreal where he finished school and began to exercise his natural inclination as an entrepreneur, becoming an insurance agent in 1965. Sidney is an active member of the community, affiliated for years with the Yiddish Theatre and the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, and is dedicated to educating youth about the Holocaust.
