Shaped like a water mill. Rectangular platform, square structure sits upon it with a peaked thatched roof topped with a half-cylinder handle. Vertically standing wheel attached to one side of the structure. Narrative: Used for Havdalah ceremony at the end of Shabbat. The close of the Jewish Shabbat is marked by the brief prayer ceremony of Havdalah, which usually takes place in the home. Part of the ceremony requires sniffing a sweet-smelling spice or plant. In Jewish communities around the Mediterranean, a sprig of a sweet-smelling shrub was customarily used. In Northern Europe by the twelfth century there are literary references to the use of a specially designed spice box or container.

Notes
Wooden box with high-relief floral designs on each side and a filligree leaf design on the lid. Lid is attached to the base with 2 hinges. Narrative: The box was made by donor, David Kropveld, in woodworking class pre-war Amsterdam. David Kropveld was born in 1918 in Amsterdam. The university he was to attend was shut down by the Germans in 1940. In July 1940, David and his father joined the White Brigade resistence group in the south of France. As members of the White Brigade, David and his father gave up their Jewish identities. In October 1942, David was arrested while smuggling war-related information between occupied and Vichy France. He was tortured for ten days before being released. He was reunited with his father in Brussels, but the two were arrested by Gestapo officers one week later. They were incarcerated for three months and deported to Auschwitz concentration camp (Poland). Father and son wore the badges of political prisoners and were selected for the slave labour camp of Monowitz, where they stayed for about five days prior to being transferred to camp of Treblinka (Poland). In Treblinka, David witnessed his father’s murder at the hands of a guard. In the fall of 1944, a guard recognized David as a boxer he had admired and had him transferred back to Auschwitz and Monowitz in December 1944 to compete boxing matches against other prisoners. In December 1944, David managed to escape the death march with a few iother prisoners. He was rescued shortly after and brought to a hospital until his health improved. No members of his family survived the war. In the summer of 1945, David met his wife. In 1947, the couple emigrated to Cuba, and in 1950, to Montreal where David began a successful career as a butcher. He immediately became involved in the underground in Holland, Belgium, and France. He was involved in transporting children to safe places. He participated in armed attacks of German convoys. He suffered two shootings and was arrested in France-subsequently sent to the camp of Breendock in Belgium and then to Treblinka, Sosnovitch, and Auschwitz. He was liberated by the Russian Amy.

Notes
Tapered base and stem with a hollow cup on the top. The base has beveled tiers and detailings along the bottom circumference, ressembling flames; just above, going up towards the stem, are lines made of indented circles, topped with another beveled ring. The base and stem are hollow up to the ring on the stem. The cup has a design of 2 menorahs, with a Star of David in between each, going around the circumference; set in the background are flames. Openworked detailings are found around the menorahs and at the top edge of the flames. The cup is topped with a tapered, curved cone, with small waves along the edges. At the very top of the cone is a metal pole with a sphere at the point; a flag, which swivels, is attached to the bar. Narrative: The close of the Jewish Shabbat is marked by the brief prayer ceremony of Havdalah, which usually takes place in the home. Part of the ceremony requires sniffing a sweet-smelling spice or plant. In Jewish communities around the Mediterranean, a sprig of a sweet-smelling shrub was customarily used, in Northern Europe by the twelfth century there are literary references of the use of a specially designed spice box or container.
