Herman understated his age in order to enlist and was sent overseas in 1943. He was the son of Edward and Eva Herman. According to his entry in the Canadian Jewish Congress' Second World War casualities book, Herman had graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Commerce and Master of Arts degrees and was an accountant before his enlistment. It has conversly been stated in a Canadian Jewish News article that he was an attorney.

Admin History/Bio
Lieutenant Victor Oscar Hertzman was born in Toronto in July, 1918. He received his M.D. from the University of Toronto in 1942, and was in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Core during the Second World War. He married his wife Eileen in 1943, and they had two children, Clyde and Owen. Hertzman and his family moved to Vancouver, where he would be a founding member of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of British Columbia and the Yukon, and a chair of the British Columbia Society of Internal Medicine. He died in Vancouver in 1994.
Hertzman specialized in cardiology, and frequently conducted experiments on his sons to prove that carefully prescribed activity was better for heart patients than rest. Prior to these experiments in the early 1960s, this was an idea, but Hertzman research helped turn that idea into an accepted practice. Hertzman's son, Clyde went on to become a doctor whose research would lead to the coining of the now widely used term “biological embedding” to describe how early environment is more a determinant of a child’s future behaviour than genetic makeup. Clyde died on Februrary 8, 2013 of an apparent heart attack.

The item is a portrait of Lt. Victor Oscar Hertzman.

Admin History/Bio
Dr. Sydney Wise (1915-2013) was born in Toronto on May 3, 1915. His parents were Anshel (b. 10 Jan 1890) and Esther (nee Weissblum) Wise. Born in Poland, Anshel came to Canada in August 1910 and became a travel agent. They had three children: Lillian (Sharpe), Dr. David K. Wise and Dr. Sydney Wise. Syd attended high school at Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto, graduating in 1931. He then went on to complete his undergraduate education at the University of Toronto.
Syd met his future wife, Mimi (nee Marin) in 1938. Born in Toronto in 1920, Mimi (d. 2004) was the daughter of Joseph and Sonia (nee Stern) Marin. The following year, Sydney moved to the United States to begin his medical internship at the Columbus Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Mimi stayed behind in Toronto and continued her studies at the University of Toronto. In 1941, she graduated with a degree in physiotherapy, although she never practiced. In 1942, Sydney and Mimi married and Mimi joined Syd in the United States. The couple had 2 children, Mark and Joel.
In 1944, Sydney was sent overseas with the United States Army as a Captain in the Medical Corps. After the war Syd and Mimi returned to Toronto where Syd opened his own practice as a pediatrician. After more than 50 years, Syd retired from his medical practice in 1997. Since then, Syd has been an active volunteer at the OJA.
During their marriage, Syd and Mimi traveled to Israel frequently, often as part of Mimi's volunteer commitments with Hadassah. On a trip to Jerusalem in 1969, Syd met and had his picture taken with Prime Minister Golda Meir.

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.
