The earliest of these records date back to the founding of this association. Only a quarter of the original donation was retained, due to the deteriorated condition of the records. Much of the discarded information pertained to membership dues and other financial documentation. The retained records consist of one box of documents which includes the constitution, some minutes, selected membership forms, clippings, posters, and publications (including information on USA Neo-Nazis). Also donated: 5 replicas of concentration camp uniform jackets and 3 concentration camp style hats, made circa 1961 for use in commemorative events.

Notice biographique / histoire administrative
The Association was founded circa 1960 in Montreal. It was an active organization typical of several founded by post-war Jewish immigrants in order to memorialize the losses sustained by Jews during the Holocaust. Their collection includes copies of striped prison uniform jackets which are still worn in demonstrations and are potential display items. The Association ceased operations in 2004. Some of its former members now operate through the Association of Romanian Survivors.
Histoire de la conservation
The collection was donated by Issie Weisfeld and Lou Zablow on April 25, 2005. The collection had been stored in the house of Mr. Zablow, the organization's President. At the time of donation the collection contained 4 large boxes (approximately 1.6m). With the help of Mr. Weisfeld the boxes were sorted and stringently weeded, as many records were moldy and had to be discarded. In some cases photocopies were made of historical documents which could not be kept in their damaged condition. Much of the discarded information pertained to membership dues and other financial documentation.
Notes
P05/07.The commemorative uniforms were donated on condition that they be lent back to Issie Wiesfeld as needed for Yom Ha Shoah (Holocaust Rememberence Day) and related events. This was done in May 2005, after which they were returned. One jacket and cap was removed from the collection on a permanent basis Aug. 2, 2005, so the present total is 4 uniform jackets and 2 caps.

Notice biographique / histoire administrative
Ita Aber was born in Montreal, in 1932 and grew up in a family dedicated to Zionist and charitable causes. She later moved to New York, where she made her name as an artist. As described in a 2001 article; "Ita Aber is an artist who delights in unconventional formats that provide unique and startling insights into Jewish Life. Her work is found in almost every major Jewish museum throughout the world. She is a master of the fabric arts, which is by its very nature, an interdisciplinary field. As practiced by Ita Aber, the fabric arts explode in scale to include the diverse skills of embroidering, beadwork, sewing, appliqué, silkscreen, jewelry design, weaving, painting, sculpture, and assemblage. The stunning range of her talents is reflected in the vast array of work and Judaic objects she has produced, from wall hangings, jewelry, and sculpture to Torah covers, etrog boxes, and Purim masks." Ita Aber is also known as a conservator of textiles, an art historian, a curator, teacher, and the author of The Art of Judaic Needlework: Traditional and Contemporary designs (Scribner 1979).
