Arthur arrived in Canada in 1948. He found a job in a factory and worked as a dress cutter until the age of 69. He married Estelle Sigler z”l in Montreal in 1957 and became a lifelong member of the Hebrew Sick Benefits Society.
Arthur has been a volunteer tour guide at the Montreal Holocaust Museum, helping educate others and sharing his painful stories, and until 89, has delivered care packages to the less fortunate. Arthur came to Canada as a refugee with a strong work ethic, a positive outlook, and Jewish values that the Nazis could not destroy.
Arthur is the proud parent of two children, Gloria and Allan, and grandfather to Jesse, Joshua, Eric, and Daniel.
