History Biographical
At the initiative of Joseph Rosensaft a meeting was held in New York in December 1961 of Bergen-Belsen survivors. It was decided at that time that a World Federation of Bergen-Belsen survivors would be formed with associations in all cities where there were numbers of survivors present. As a result in early 1962 an association was formed in Montreal with Paul Trepman as president. The aims were the following: A. Making sure that neither the world nor the Jews ever forgot the Holocaust; B. Wage a continuous fight against Neo-Nazi groups and organizations; C. Offer brotherly aid to former Bergen-Belsen inmates who are in need; D. Keep alive the heroic and rich Bergen-Belsen tradition. The association met a number of times a year, although the main focus was the Liberation Rally, which took place on or around April 15th, the date of the Bergen-Belsen camp was liberated by the armed forces. Some of the other activities of the association were the erection of a monument in a local Jewish cemetery and a trip back to Belsen on the 25th anniversary of the liberation.

History Biographical
The Centre was officially established in January 1944, the Women's Committee was established in the spring of the same year. Membership consisted of 300 people. The aim of the Centre was to provide help to Bialystok survivors of the War. Contacted through newspapers in Europe the survivors wrote to the Centre, identifying themselves as Bialystokers. Every letter was answered and packages of food, clothes, and money were sent back to them. Money was raised either through membership dues or by private donations. Teas, raffles, souvenir albums were also organized as fundraisers. The Centre cooperated with other relief agencies in Montreal, especially the Federation of Polish Jews. It also maintained contact with Bialystoker Centers around the world. The Centre's most active years were from 1945 to 1955. It was never officially disbanded. As of 1986, members were still receiving letters.

History Biographical
Boris Rubinstein was born in Proskurov, Austria on March 25, 1910 to Leib and Chaya (nee Guz) Rubinstein. At age 20, Mr. Rubinstein immigrated to Canada, arriving in Montreal in 1930 where he joined his brother Sam who was already living in the city. Mr. Rubinstein attended McGill University for a period. In 1939, Mr. Rubinstein enlisted in the Canadian Army, serving in the signal and intelligence crops. He was present at Dieppe and was amongst the first Canadian soldiers that entered Nazi concentration camps in Poland. After the war, Mr. Rubinstein worked for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation organization, particularly as part of the Yugoslavian mission. While working for UNRRA, he was able to locate and secure immigration for 10 of his surviving family members, each of whom had been in concentration camps during the war. According to his obituary, in his role with UNRRA Mr. Rubinstein was able to negotiate with Romanian Communist leader Ana Pauker for a train of Jewish orphans to be diverted from Romania to Palestine, rather than to the Soviet Union. Upon his return to Montreal, Mr. Rubinstein opened a jewellery company with his brother Hyman, who had survived concentration camps during the war. Their company, Rubros Company, was marketed as "society jewellers" and counted amongst their clients numerous high profile personalities, such as Tony Bennett and Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Mr. Rubinstein passed away from cancer in Montreal in 1983.
