Notes
1 page. One-sided. On the background is a watermark of a Star of David surrounded with a laurel branch and a vine branch. On the t.l. is a red fiscal stamp valued at 5 Reichsmark. The document was issued to Georges Novak when he graduated a book-binding course. Narrative: Georges Novak was born Jiricek Pick on 1923-08-06 in Cesky Brod (Czech Republic, then Czechoslovakia). Georges' father, Vladimir, owned a large textile mill and factory that employed 400 people. His mother was an accomplished opera singer. George and his sister Hana were brought up in a Catholic home as Georges’ father had converted to Catholicism. Georges' father's Jewish identity was not revealed until the Germans identified him as a Jew. On 1939-03-15, the German Army invaded their hometown. In 1940, Georges was classified as a Jew according to the Nuremberg Laws and was forbidden to attend school. In 1941, he moved to Prague where he studied book binding. Georges' father was imprisoned by the Gestapo. In Prague, Georges was falsely arrested for sabotage and sentenced to life in prison. He spent two years at Lipa camp. He described it as a farm with livestock and a vegetable garden where Georges was guarded by a German couple. On 1943-09-13, Georges was transferred to Theresienstadt ghetto-camp. There, he was sent to a military prison called Kleine Festung. During the day, Georges was assigned to work in the garden and was able to smuggle vegetables into the ghetto-camp. In 1945-05, the Soviet Army liberated Theresienstadt. Georges escaped from the Russians and went to Prague where he attended medical school at Charles University. He learned that his parents and his sister had been deported in 1942 and were murdered in Auschwitz. Georges immigrated to Montreal alone in 1949.
