History Biographical
Sophie Soil was born in 1935, in Iasi, Romania. After surviving the Holocaust and the Communist takeover, her family immigrated to Canada from Romania in 1948, following more than a year of being displaced persons in Hungary and Austria. She has been writing for more than twenty years. Mrs. Soil is an artist/ craftperson and is a widely-published poet in various books, magazine and periodicals. She has won many prizes for her work, among them two Pushcart nominations. She has two chapbooks published by Passion Among the Cacti Press and and two full collections published by Publish America. Her personal chronologies are written in freeform verse poignantly spinning autobiographical tales of her sometimes harsh and inconceivable childhood spent in those war-torn years and through the catastrophe that was the Holocaust. Mrs. Soil also holds herbalist and master herbalist degrees, and is a writer of alternative health material. She lives in Toronto with her husband of 61 years. (Source: author's bio., 2014)
