Administrative History
Founded in 1980, the Transnistria Survivors' Association works diligently to provide a voice for and raise awareness of a lesser known group of Holocaust survivors from Transnistria, an area by the eastern Moldovan border with today's Ukraine that was the third largest Jewish population in Europe. As early as 1933, the Jews of Bucovina and Basarabia were affected by the brutally repressive laws aimed at Jews enforced by both the Nazis and the Romanians, neighbours turning on neighbours. By 1942, over 100,000 Romanian Jews were deported or murdered and many were interned at concentration camps in the Transnistria area. Those who survived these tragic circumstances and made a new home in Toronto, found one another and banded together to lend each other support and to tell their largely unknown story of oppression and survival. They organize regular Hazkarah (memorial) services and untiringly present their stories at speaking engagements and synagogues.

Benevolent societies, or landsmenshaften, were formed in the early part of the twentieth-centurey along shtetl lines by Eastern European Jewish immigrants to Toronto. The societies served to unite members of the community who originated from the same town or region, and also helped to secure passage to Toronto for those who were still in Europe. The societies also provided services to its dues-paying membership such as: aid in finding employment or accomodation, hospital and special medical care, doctor's visitation, sick benefit payments, funeral benefits and arrangements, and in many cases a burial plot. Some societies also provided a loans to its membership through a credit society. In later years, many benevlent societies also began to act as fraternal organizations that engaged in cultural and philanthropic programming.

Admin History/Bio
This was a very active committee consisting of representatives from the fraternal orders, sick benefit societies and landsmanshaften. An early chairman was Alfred Green. In 1947, it was Carl Herlick, K.C. The committee dealt - or tried to deal - among other issues, with the relationship of the societies and the medical profession. After the expulsion of the United Jewish Peoples Order in 1950, it seemed to peter out. The Societies Division held annual social events - one year at the Prince George Hotel.
Scope and Content
Series consists of general files of the Societies Division.
