b&w, group portrait of from right to left: Chana Rayzl Mandel, Sara, Dorath, Dorath’s husband Narrative: Harry Cohen was born in Poland and had immigrated to Montreal. In the summer of 1939, he returned to Poland to take care of family affairs (presumabley following his mother's death) leaving his four children behind. His wife had already passed away. The war broke out and Harry was unable to leave Poland. HE was hiding with a Christian family but was finally deported to Auschwitz. He was presumably killed in Auschwitz, which would make him the only Canadian citizen known to have been murdered in the camp. The prayer shawl was returned to Harry Cohen's children in Septembe or October 1945 by a Polish woman who claimed to have hidden Harry before his deportation.along the shwal were also sent Harry's prayer book and unsigned traveller’s cheques.

History Biographical
Max Cohen (b. Minsk, Russia, 1880, d. Ottawa, 1960) arrived in Canada as a single man and established himself as a dairy farmer in Buckingham, Quebec. His wife, Martha Hoffman (b. Ukraine, 1892, d. Ottawa, 1983) arrived from Russia, and they were married by Reverend Louis Doctor at Buckingham on March 30, 1909. Max peddled meat in the area as well. The next move was to Ottawa around 1914 or 1915, where he operated a butcher shop in the Old Market Building. He sold that business to Michael Sobcov in 1921. By 1924, the Cohens moved to Metcalfe where Max Cohen operated a general store with his brother-in-law, David Hoffman, as a partner. By 1929, Max Cohen returned to Ottawa and opened another butcher shop at 44 Nelson Street. Max Cohen moved his business to Dalhousie Street, then Bank Street, followed by the Byward market. Max purchased the Abraham and Dora Lithwick lease at 34 By Ward Market, and subsequently moved next door to the Dominion Store property. Four of Max Cohen’s sons; Israel Cohen, Al Cohen, Joel Cohen and Harold Cohen all worked in the meat business. Al and his brother Harold eventually moved into the used office furniture business and building demolition, where Al and Harold were known as Mr. Copper and Mr. Brass.
