Manufacturing information is printed on the back in white letters. Narrative: Donor is Eva Basch, the daughter of Eliezer Basch and Blanka Wiener. The Yiddish-Hebrew typewriter was used by Eliezer to write his memoirs after the war. Eliezer and Blanka were engaged and escaped together in 1940 to the USSR where they were arrested as political opponents and separated. Eliezer was sent to Siberia (he was liberated in 1948), Blanka was sent to Kazakhstan (liberated 1947). They reunited in Budapest in 1948 where one of Eliezer’s brothers still lived.They later went to DP camp in Münich where they got new ID papers (changed birth dates and official location of wedding). They Immigrated to Canada via Halifax in 1950; stayed in Montreal for a short time (Eliezer had a sister there), then moved to Kingston where Eliezer’s brother had a store and lived in Napanee until 1953. In 1953, they moved back to Montreal where Eva could have access to Jewish education. Blanka was a waitress and Eliezer worked different jobs including in an insurance company. Eliezer was the Executive Director of the Labour Zionist organization. They bought a yarn store on St. Laurent bvd, called “Magasin de fibres L.B” (now La Bobineuse on Mont-Royal East) which they managed until they retired.
