Admin History/Bio
Michael Marrus (b. 3 February 1941) is a Canadian historian of France, the Holocaust, and Jewish history. He was born in Toronto and received his BA at the University of Toronto in 1963 and his MA and PhD at the University of California, Berkeley in 1964 and 1968. He is a professor emeritus of Holocaust studies at the University of Toronto. Marrus married Randi Greenstein in 1971 and has three children.
Marrus is an expert on the history of French Jewry and antisemitism. He co-wrote with Robert Paxton a book on Vichy France that shows that the antisemitism of Vichy was not imposed by the Germans, that at times Vichy was more brutal towards the French Jews than the Germans, and that the French state played a leading and indispensable role in organizing the deportation of Jews to death camps. Furthermore, Marrus and Paxton argued that Vichy was more brutal than other European states occupied by the Germans.
Marrus was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2008.
Scope and Content
The item is a portrait of a two year-old boy seated on a ledge with a toy in his hand, while facing the camera.

Administrative History
Albert Cohen (1918-2006) who also went by the nickname "Boomie," was born on November 12, 1918 in Hamilton, Ontario. Pearl Cohen (nee Chaunce) (1919-2008) was born in Hamilton on September 2, 1919. Albert and Pearl married in 1941. In the same year, Albert volunteered to serve in the army as a staff sargeant stationed in Hamilton. He was later discharged in May 1946 after the war. Albert then joined Hamilton's Maccabees, Branch 343 of the Royal Canadian Legion. The branch was founded in 1947 and had a membership of 150 people. The Maccabees' membership was made up of Jewish veterans of WWII, and some veterans of WWI. The branch held meetings in Hamilton's Jewish centre. Albert served as president of the branch for almost 20 years, from 1975 to around 2000. The Maccabees were quite active, and helped raise money by selling poppies for Remembrance Day. The money raised would be sent to general hospitals, veterans hospitals, and families of needy veterans. Albert passed away on August 7, 2006, and Pearl passed away April 18, 2008.
