History Biographical
Abraham Dworkin was born in Russia (date unknown) and died in Ottawa on April 13, 1951. He married Deborah Azmier who died June, 1922. Abraham's second wife was Fanny Saipe. Abraham and Deborah had eight children: Sarah, Ben (b. March 25, 1900 d. 1994, aged 94), Rose, Fay, Nel (also seen as Nell), Alex, Helen and Clara. Ben Dworkin was a public servant and reporter who wrote for multiple publications including the Ottawa Citizen and the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin and Review. He was the crime reporter for the Citizen in the late 1940's and early 1950's. The Dworkin family is best known in Ottawa for their store, Dworkin Furs, which began in 1901. Its original location was at 256 Rideau St. The store closed in 2012 due to falling sales as fur went out of fashion, and it, along with Ottawa's Burkholder Furs, was purchased by Global Fur Inc. out of Montreal. The home itself likely should have been designated a heritage building with protected status but by May, 2014 the home was the last remaining house on that stretch of Rideau Street downtown and it was demolished to make way for a modern condominium building (the City specifically stated that it no longer fit the context of the rest of the street).
