History Biographical
Adele Druckman was born in Dorna Candrenilor near Vatra-Dornia, Romania, in 1894. At eighteen years old, she attended a school called Jaures-Zeugnis in the town of Chernovitz. In 1938, at 44, she was married to Isaac Kinsbrunner, a businessman in Chernovitz, which was under control of the Nazis. As Jews, they had to wear a yellow star and carry an identity card. After the Germans were defeated, the Soviets took over. Most of their family was gone, and they struggled to start again. Finally, in 1949 they decided to leave and emigrate to Paris. Adele packed her monogrammed linen, and hid her diamond engagement ring as well as an unmounted diamond. Isaac's cousin had moved to Canada in 1913, so they went to the Canadian Legation in Paris for permission to immigrate. They were required to leave by January 1950, and so booked passage on the Samaria to arrive in Halifax on February 9, 1950. They were met by Isaac's cousin, Sydney Brown, ne Kinsbrunner, and his wife Jessie Cohen, who took them to Sydney's shop in Montreal at 4464 Coloniale Avenue. Unfortunately, Isaac suffered a heart attack and died, having only been in Canada for 12 days, devastating Adele. Sydney and Jessie had two sons, aged 5 and 7, who helped Adele learn English using their schoolbooks, building on the French she had learned in Paris. Sydney learned of a job as a nurse's aid at the Mount Sinai Sanitorium in Ste Agathe, a village north of Montreal, which Adele took to immediately. She was well suited to comfort the patients and enjoyed the peace of the countryside. Adele was often included in Brown family events, including Passover and Rosh Hashana, and she even undertook a trip to Brooklyn, New York, to visit Sydney's sister, Pearl. She was required to provide an explanation for her lack of a passport, but was fortunate enough to have been able to bring her birth certificate from Romania. The Brown family often visisted Ste Agathe to visit, until Adele retired at 74, after 18 years at the Sanitorium. Upon retirement, Adele returned to Montreal, where Sydney helped her find a small apartment on Cote St Luc road next to a synagogue. Sydney's sons, meanwhile, had grown up and become both doctors. They both got married in the same week, and Ida offered her engagement ring to the elder son, while the younger son was offered the unmounted diamond. (Biographical note taken from file 00001.)

Asher Pierce
History Biographical
Asher Pierce, born in the village of Koltinan in the Kovno district of Lithuania to Jacob and Feige Dvorah (Fay Deborah), nee Bernstein on March 15, 1867. Arrived in Canada in 1880 at the age of 13 and assisted by an uncle, Hyman Bernstein as his brother Charles had also been helped when he immigrated a year earlier. The first work he found was cutting bed slats in Montreal furniture company and later a water boy for a railroad construction gang. According to the family, the latter job was what got him started in the peddling trade. His remaining family immigrated to Canada in 1884, soon attempting farming in Middlechurch, Manitoba and then again in 1888 in Oxbow, North West Territories. Pierce returned to Montreal at the turn of the century and started his successful whole sale fur business. In 1900 he married Ella (Nellie) Vineberg and the couple had one son in 1901, Sydney David. Pierce was heavily involved in the Jewish community and philanthropy as evident from the following entry from Canadian Jewry, "...selected and assisted the Jewish colony at Hirsch, Sask., assisted to settle the French Colony in Cardroff, Sask. In 1894 settled a colony of 24 Jewish families at his own expense, which ten years later was the most prosperous colony in the West; was one of the five who built the Mont Sinai Sanatorium, St[e]. Agathe; also one of five who purchased the Orphan’s Home; Life Governor of the following hospitals: Montreal General, Western, Notre Dame and Verdun Asylum. Past President A. and E. Pierce and Co. Ltd., founder and first Vice-President of Canadian Fur Auction Sales Co., Ltd., past Vice-President of Federation of Jewish Philanthropies. In 1927 founded the Gan Chaym Corporation Ltd. for the development of orange plantations in Palestine, which now owns and operates the largest Palestinian orange grove. He was associated in this undertaking and in other transactions for the development of Palestine, with the late Lord Melchet. Clubs: Montefiore, Islesmere Golf."
