History Biographical
Sarah Fischer was born in Paris, France, moved as a young girl to England, where she attended grade school. At the age of 13 she and her parents (1909) came to Canada and they settled in Montreal. In Montreal, Fischer was employed as a long distance operator during the day and at night took free singing lessons at the Monument Nationale. In 1917, Fischer won the Strathcona Award which enabled her to go to London, England on a three-year scholarship at the Royal College of Music. She left Montreal in 1919 and with a few interruptions spent the next 21 years of her life abroad. She sang in major opera houses in Europe, gave numerous radio recitals and concerts and achieved good reviews. She was considered a most lyrical soprano with a beautiful appearance and good acting ability. In 1940 she returned to Montreal. For the next 35 years, until she died on May 3, 1975, Fischer spent most of her time orgnanizing the Sarah Fischer Concerts where young musicians got a chance to appear in public and show their talent. Many prominent Canadian musicians got their start with these concerts.

History Biographical
Sarah Mindes (nee Bernstein) was born in Sheta, Lithuania in 1904. She married David Mindes, a fellow graduate of the Jewish Teachers College in Kaunas, Lithuania and both of them taught school in a small town called Malat for several years where their daughter, Evelyn, was born. The family emigrated to Canada in 1930 and settled in Montreal, while David went to Winnipeg to fulfil a 2-year contract he had made to teach in one of its Yiddish schools before returning to Montreal. In the meantime, Sarah worked in a dress factory as a sewing-machine operator. In 1941, David and Sarah opened a grocery store on Park Ave. in Montreal until they retired. Sarah Mindes began keeping a diary at the age of 15 and did so until she died at age 71, in 1975. Her early entries were written in Russian and Hebrew but soon thereafter she changed to Yiddish. She was an avid reader, an avid notetaker, an active attender at lectures and Montreal's reading circles, and an active participant in giving lectures to a variety of groups. In 1974, one year before she died, she was honoured at a formal dinner, and with a plaque for her contribution to Yiddish culture by the Montreal Chapter of the Yikuf, by the Mendele and Sholem Aleichem Layen Krisens and by the Montreal Culture and Reading Circles. (Source: Evelyn Shapiro)
Custodial History
8 family photos scanned by Carole Ouellette as greyscale tiffs were received by email Oct 4, 2010 in advance of the papers. Also in advance of mailing the box containing her mother's notes and diaries, Evelyn Shapiro sent by email attachment two documents authored by her. Evelyn Shapiro died in 2010, shortly after this collection was received.
Notes
