Notes
Fruma Eliasewitz was born on January 1, 1922 in Skaudvile, Lithuania, to a religious family. She had five sisters and one brother. At the age of 15, she moved to Klaipeda (Memel) to work in a cigarette factory for two years. She got married in 1939. When the German army invaded Lithuania in 1939, Fruma moved to Tuarage and then to Kuanas where she remained until June 1941, working again in a cigarette factory. She spent a year and a half in the Slobodka ghetto. In 1942, she was transferred to Riga, Latvia, where she worked in the airport to supply building material. With the Russians approaching, she was deported to Dachau where she worked in the kitchen until April 1945. She was forced on a death march for almost a week until she was liberated by the American army in April 1945 near Wolfratshausen, Germany. She spent a short period in the Feldafing DP camp in Germany. Between 1945 and 1949 she lived with her husband in Munich, working in the kitchen for the Jewish committee and raising their first son. In 1949, the family moved to Israel where she had her second son. The following year, she had a daughter. In March 1953 she immigrated to Canada via Paris and Halifax. She worked various jobs - washing floors, in a stocking factory, and Cantor’s bakery in Côte St Luc. Two of her sisters live in Israel and four in Montreal.
