History Biographical
M. Hassin Arnoni (“Dr”.) had many European associations. He was Russian by birth. As a young man he went to Palestine to be a chalutz. Then he attended law school in Brussels, Belgium and received his Doctor of Law. Then he worked in London, met his future wife Orah and followed her to New York, and moved on to Montreal where the eldest son was born. It has always been stated that Dr. Arnoni came to Ottawa through a meeting with Archibald and Lillian Freiman. He became the principal of the Jewish People’s School Ottawa. With his sound education and excellent oratorical skills, he travelled across Canada with Mrs Lillian Freiman on behalf of the Zionist cause. Arnoni was the founder of the Young Poale Zion Organization of Ottawa. In 1929,1930 he commenced translations for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as he spoke 27 languages, including Russian, Polish, the Romance languages, Arabic, Hebrew, Yiddish but no Asian languages. He worked on an English-Hebrew dictionary based on the Jerusalem Post but it was never published. He also wrote speeches for Zionist causes. In the late 1930s and early 1940s he was an active and influential member of the Histadrut League, later the Labour Zionist Council of Ottawa. He went to Israel in 1949 and died there at the age of 58. He was married to Orah and they had two sons, one settling in Israel and Ariel in Ottawa. They were later divorced.
Notes
1. Chalutz is defined as a young man or woman who went to Palestine to settle the land. Many chalutzim were well educated Europeans. 2. Dr. Arnoni was considered too liberal in his bare headed walks with his wife. Not a religious man, he was criticized in the community for his unorthodox behaviour. He greatly influenced the youth of Ottawa. The Herzl Group (Young Judea) named their group in honour of him. 3. Sources include Shirley Berman’s notes (card files) taken from Hugo Levendel, 1989 and a telephone conversation with Ariel Arnoni, December, 2006. 4. Other notes on Dr. Arnoni. He was President of the RA Chess Club “There were few people who could beat him”. 5. He wrote speeches for Louis Achbar, A. J. Freiman, anyone who need a speech, Zionism and other topics as well. 6. Orah has been described as a “woman ahead of her time” She was founding member of Pioneer Women in Ottawa, a music teacher, played the piano, very artistic and skilled with her hands in sculpture, knitting. She originally was from Russia.

Notes
b&w, portrait from left to right, top: Israel Falk, his wife Leona (Leah) Falk; L-R bottom: Rutka Grynszpan, Mrs. Buksowa, Michael Falk (Israel and Leons's son, 14 years old at the time). Narrative: Israel (Ignacy) Falk was born on 4 February 1904 in Warsaw, Poland. He was the son of a tailor and began to work for a living at age 14. He lacked formal education but secured a job as a bookkeeper in a print shop. Eventually he earned enough to support a wife and child. Shortly after deportations began in 1942 his parents, siblings, and their families had been taken to the Treblinka gas chambers. In September, Falk was put on a train to Treblinka, but was able to pull off the window bars and jump from the train. He returned to the ghetto. In March 1943 he arranged for his wife and 11-year-old son, Michael, to escape. They spent the remainder of the war hiding with a Polish friend. Falk remained in the ghetto to aid the resistance with smuggling in weapons and bomb supplies. On 19 April 1943, Falk and the remaining Jews made a stand when the SS came to deport them. They held off the Nazis for several weeks until the ghetto was torched. Falk was one of the few survivors. He was captured and sent to Budzyn. Four two years he endured four different concentration camps. The last was Schindler's Factory in Brunlitz in 1945. That same year Russian troops liberated the area and Falk was able to return to his family in France. They emigrated to Canada in 1949 on the SS Samaria. At some point after the war he remarried (as the result of the death or divorce of his first wife (?)). He was an activist in the Labour Movement. During the National Convention of the Labour Committee at the Chelsea Hotel, Atlantic City, NY, in 1947 Mr. Falk was one of the key speakers. He wasa strong speaker regarding the Holocaust, but he didn't talk about Schindler much until after watching 'Schindler's List' with his family. Israel died in Montreal on 13 December 1996.
