Narrative: Israel Viezel was born in January 1919 in Marosvásárhely (Hungary) a town known today as Târgu Mure? (Romania). Raised in a religious family, Israel was attending a yeshiva in Sziget to become a rabbi when the Nazis invaded the region. On May 3, 1944, Israel was among the 8,638 Jews of Târgu Mure? to be forced into three ghettos and deported to Auschwitz the same month. Selected for slave labour in Auschwitz, Israel was working in the forests surrounding the camp. He was later transferred to the concentration camp of Buchenwald. Israel survived the camps, as did three of his siblings. His parents, two sisters and one brother were killed in Auschwitz. After the end of the war, Israel returned to Romania and spent some time in Israel. He finally immigrated to New Brunswick, where one of his sisters had settled. After a few months in Saint John, he relocated to Montreal. Israel worked in several restaurants on the Saint-Laurent Boulevard before opening his own deli, “Israel Delicatessen”, on Decarie Boulevard. In 1965, due to construction on the road for the upcoming Expo 67, Israel Delicatessen had to close. Mr. Viezel took that opportunity to spend some vacation visiting his brother in Israel. This is where he met Talia, a child survivor from Romania, who would become his wife. They lived together in Montreal until his death in 1999.
