Scope and Content
Accession consists of a flyer for the movie Villa Heimann: A Lost Memorial, which was shown at Temple Har Zion on 3 November 2018 as part of Holocaust Education Week, and a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation from the same event. Claude Heimann, the grandson of Albert and Frieda Heimann, the owners of the Villa Heimann, spoke at the event.
Administrative History
Claude Heimann was born on 21 March 1944 in Johannesburg, South Africa to Wilhelm "Bill" Otto Heimann and Lotte Heimann (née Rosenberg). He received a bachelor of science degree from the University of Witwatersrand in 1966. In 1969, he married Adele Masail at the Pine Street Synagogue in Johannesburg. They lived in Windsor Park, Johannesburg and had two children together: Nicole Heidi (now married to Marshall Starkman) and Marc Steven.
Claude initially worked for Market Research Africa interviewing farm workers across the country. In 1971 he joined Reader's Digest in South Africa as a research director. Believing there would not be a peaceful solution to apartheid, Claude had decided at a young age that he would evenutally leave South Africa. He hoped that Reader's Digest was a company that might be able to transfer him to work in another country. Ten years later, in 1981, an opportunity came up with the Canadian edition of Reader's Digest in a similar role. Claude accepted the position and immigrated with his family to Toronto in May 1981. For their first few months they lived at Glengrove Manor on Yonge Street between Lawrence and Eglinton. In July, they moved into their home in Thornhill. Adele initially stayed home with the family, but eventually worked as a bookkeeper for a variety of different businesses.
Claude left Reader's Digest in 1990 to become a partner in Totum Research. Throughout his career, Claude has served on the research committee of PMB and has been a member of the board of directors of CARF for whom he served as technical director. He has also served on a number of other media research related committees, including the technical committee of AMPS and the Magazines Canada Research Committee. Claude was also active on the board of Temple Har Zion, holding a variety of positions, including: regular board member, vice president for worship, vice president, treasurer, president and past President for two years on the executive. He also reported board decisions for the THZ monthly bulletin.

Scope Note
Camp Gesher originated in 1963 from a merger between Camp Revivim (serving campers from Ottawa and Toronto) and Camp Kissufim (serving campers from Montreal). It is part of Habonim Dror, the Labour-Zionist youth movement and is located near Cloyne, Ontario.
History
Camp Gesher’s small size is central to the spirit of the camp where a culture of acceptance, individuality and mutual respect is fostered. The camp philosophy revolves around socialist ideals and its structure is similar to that of a kibbutz. Hebrew is used in day-to-day conversation and there are many opportunities to learn about Jewish and Israeli history and culture. There is a kosher kitchen and Shabbat and Havdalah are celebrated.
