Accession consists of photographs documenting the activities of the Chmeilnicker Charitable Society including the annual "Hazkarah", teas, and an unveiling of the monument at Lambert Cemetery.
The Chmeilnicker Society was started in Toronto after the Holocaust by survivors. In its early years, the Society played an important role in the lives of the newly-arrived groups for socializing with people who had shared similar experiences in Europe. They organized picnics, women's teas, celebrate Yom Yerushalaim, Channukah parties and an annual "Hazkarah", a memorial service for those who died in the war. The Hazkarah continues to be the most important activity of the group today.
