B&W, formal portrait of family of Olga Rabinovitz Bilich in Liubar, Ukraine. From left to right: grandmother Bluma, grandfather Volko (sitting), uncle Nathan (standing), brother Musi (child standing on bench), father Zelik and mother Manya, 1921. Narrative: Photograph of maternal grandparents and family of donor, Olga Rabinovitz Bilich, before her birth in 1924. Everyone in this photo was killed between 1941-1944. Bluma Bilich was murdered in 1941 by a young communist (Komsomol) for her gold teeth. Volko Bilich committed suicide by jumping into a well. Olga's parents, Zelik and Manya, were killed by Ukrainian police in 1941. Her brother Musi was conscripted into the Red Army and killed in combat in 1944 near Ternopil (Tarnopol). The fate of her uncle Nathan is unknown, but he did not survive. Olga was born in Liubar in 1924. She went to Odessa in June 1941, where she cared for wounded soldiers. She was evacuated to Kazakhstan, and returned to Odessa after the war. She went back to Liubar in 1944, when it was liberated. She eventually settled in Kiev, teaching Russian literature and language.

B&w. Outdoors. Group of men, women, and children sitting and standing in front of a house, in front of the children on the right is a decorative table cloth on a table. The men are wearing suits with ties, and the women are wearing dresses. Benjamin Garfinkel is sitting at the table on the left side; his wife is sitting next to him. Narrative: This photograph was taken on the occasion of a family gathering to celebrate the imminent departure of Benjamin Garfinkel (born July 18, 1894 in Podolsk, Russia) and his wife Ita (born circa 1900) to North America. The photograph was taken at the house of an aunt named Sourka. She is probably the one who booked the photographer for the occasion. Benjamin and Ita Garfinkel were the last ones to immigrate out of Europe. Ita's family had immigrated to Montreal already, mostly because of the pogroms that took place in their region. They left Ukraine on August 28, 1926 via Moscow, St. Petersburg (probably) and took the SS Murdoch from Southampton, UK to Canada (probably Québec city or Halifax). Ita was pregnant at the time of their trip; she had her fourth child in Canada. Family members who stayed in Ukraine were all killed during the Holocaust.

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.
