Albert and Robert’s parents, Regina and Avrum, tragically suffered a different fate, as they were transported to Auschwitz. Upon arrival at the concentration camp, Regina was immediately separated from Avrum, who was never seen again.
Regina returned to Belgium alone, and, by a miracle of G-d, was able to locate all of her boys exactly where she hid them. With hope for a new beginning, Regina moved with her children in 1951 to Montreal, Canada, to begin the next chapter of their lives.
In Canada, Albert found new friends and had to adjust to a different world after life in an orphanage setting.
Albert and Robert’s three older brothers were hidden in convents by Righteous gentiles.
