History Biographical
Nathan Benditsky was born in Montreal on June 28th, 1918. He was one of six children born to Israel and Esther Benditsky who had emigrated from Russia in 1908. After beginning to work in family's textile trimmings business, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941 along with his two brothers Samuel and Rubin. Soon stationed overseas, he met Ruth Schrager and in October 1945, the two married in Manchester, England. Travelling back to Canada in 1946, Nathan Benditsky returned to the family business, Star Pleating Inc. Nathan ran the company alongisde his brother Samuel and father, Israel. The business continued into the late 1990's moving from Rue Alymer to Mount-Royal Avenue. Ruth Benditsky (nee Schrager) was born on May 10th, 1927 in Vienna. Her parents Mortiz and Rachel Schrager, and sister Mirjam Zimmerman (nee Schrager) moved to England in 1937. After marrying, Ruth Benditsky waited a number of months before recieving her travel arrangements from the Canadian Wives' Bureau. Alongside thousands of other women, she immigrated to Canada in July 1946. Numerous relationships were initiated during World War II between Canadian military personnel and citizens living in areas where the military was stationed. Though such relationships were officially discouraged by the military, many nonetheless resulted in marriage. In 1946 the majority of newly-wed women, and some men, travelled to Canada to join their partners following the war. The estimated 48,000 war brides that made the transatlantic trip represented a significant influx of new immigrants from Britian, as well as the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy and Germany. Once Ruth and Nathan Benditsky were reunited in Montreal, they worked to bring Ruth's family to North America. Moritz and Rachel Schrager, as well as Ruth's grandmother, Rivka Monath, settled in Montreal in the late 1940's. Ruth and Nathan Benditsky raised three children, Howard Benditsky, Suzan Baron and Naomi Benditsky. Ruth Benditsky died in 1980, survived by Nathan Benditsky, who died in 1999.
