Biography
Dr. H. Fenigstein was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1913. He was raised in an affluent, assimilated neighbourhood. He entered the study of medicine at the University of Warsaw in 1931. He served three years with the Military Academy for Sanitary Officers (i.e., for medical and paramedical graduates) in the Polish army. At the outbreak of the Second World War on 1 September 1939, Dr. Fenigstein worked at a military hospital. In April 1940, he was sent to the Warsaw Ghetto and started to work as the head of the pathology department at the Jewish Hospital. In 1948, Dr. Feningstein published "The History of the Jewish Hospital in Ghetto Warsaw." Some of his research was published in "The Hunger Disease," a collection of research papers that were hidden during the war. With the final liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto, Dr. Fenigstein was transported to several labour camps and was liberated by the Americans on 30 April 1945. After the war, he moved to Munich, where he worked for UNRA and the University of Munich. Dr. Feningstein immigrated to Canada in September 1948. Dr. Feningstein died in 1993.

Dr. Fenigstein explains how the hospital functioned.

The group was able to resist attempts by the Germans to liquidate the ghetto in January 1943 and on 19 April 1943. 21:05: Dr. Fenigstein gives an account of the Jewish population in Warsaw at the outbreak of the war, at the peak of the Warsaw Ghetto, and after the first two liquidations. He suggests that, of those remaining in the ghetto, several hundred put up a brave, strong resistance against the Germans in April 1943. 24:40: Dr. Fenigstein describes his work in the hospital after the second liquidation. Additionally, he worked in conjunction with the underground military force by stockpiling medical supplies in order to look after the wounded. 26:20: Dr. Fenigstein relates what happened to him after the April 1943 liquidation.

Biography
Libby and Richard Dwor were prominant people in the Port Colborne community.
Richard's parents, Bella and her husband Max Dwor (who predeceased her in 1932), were pioneers and among the founders of the Port Colborne community and its Agudath Achim Synagogue. The synagogue building was formerly the Dwor family residence and was the centre of religious life of the community.
Libby Dwor was born in Peterborough and moved to Port Colborne as a bride-to-be with husband Richard at the age of nineteen. She fell in love with the community.
Libby helped established Port Colborne’s first synagogue, chaired the Hebrew Ladies Society for many years, was involved with the Port Colborne Hospital Auxiliary, was a member and chair of Port Colborne Horticultural Society, was an avid member of Welland and Port Colborne curling clubs and a director of Welland-Port Colborne Concert Association, for which she remained an honorary director.
Richard Dwor died of cancer in 1979. Libby never remarried.
Libby was a member of and very active in the United Israel Appeal and chair of the Women’s Campaign for the province of Ontario for more than eighteen years. She was an avid supporter of the arts in Niagara and Israel, where she financially supported a cultural centre for music and theatre.

Admin History/Bio
In 1945, the UJWF received two applications concerning capital needs -- one from the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. and one from the General Wingate Branch. They suggested that a joint capital campaign for $750 000 be held for a Jewish War Memorial Centre, which would house the activities of the "Y" and the General Wingate Branch.
The campaign began in 1948, and was spearheaded by Samuel Godfrey, campaign chairman. The campaign raised approximately $350 000 which was later added to the $1 250 000 raised in the second campaign, to reach the "Y"s total Combined Building Campaign goal of $1 500 000. The legion never moved into the "Y" building, but the building was dedicated to the Jewish soldiers who fought for Canada in the world wars, during the cornerstone ceremony.
Scope and Content
This file contains a survey report of the Toronto Jewish community created by the National Welfare Board prior to the campaign launch, meeting minutes of the Wingate Branch, and general correspondence. There is also a copy of a "Victory" booklet from 1942, which contains a list of "Y" member names who were enlisted in the armed forces during the Second World War.
