Administrative History
The Herskowitzes: Rose (née Malec) Herskowitz (1926-2007) was a Polish Holocaust survivor. Prior to the war, her father had been a tailor. Following the war, Rose went on to marry Sam Herskowitz, who was also a survivor, and together they had a son, Norman. Upon hearing that their niece had survived, Jake and Esther Miltz, Rose’s aunt and uncle on her father’s side, arranged for her and her family to join them in Canada. This was in the late 1940s. (It seems likely that the pre-War photographs in the accession were sent to Jake and Esther prior to the War.) Upon arriving in Canada, Rose worked for a poultry processing plant before moving with her family to Oshawa in the early 1950s. The family lived in Oshawa for five years, operating a variety store. In 1955, the family moved to Hallam St. in the Dovercourt area. It is possible they bought a fish and chips store. For approximately five-to-eight years, they owned Indorval, a confectionary, afterwhich they opened a variety store on Eglinton near Avenue Rd. Norman later opened a hobby shop they called Norm’s Hobbies. After Sam died in 1979, Rose went to work for Pearl’s Meat on Bathurst St. Rose herself died in 2007. The Kates: Irwin “Red” Kates was a pharmacist who owned a pharmacy called Kates Drugs that was located at the corner of College and Lippincott. Irwin married Molly Kelman with whom he had four children: Sheila, Bonnie, Gerald, and Kevin. Their firstborn, Sheila, died when only six years old. The family lived on Markham St. and was involved with the Young Men’s Hebrew Association (Y.M.H.A.). Later, Irwin opened up a drugstore in Thistletown with Lou Stillman. The Malecs: Toby Malec came to Canada with her mother, Hannah Fishman, from whom she took the name Fishman (Hannah’s second marriage was to Gordon Fishman who already lived in Toronto). Toby married Nathan Gries in 1935.
