Piil, Asta

Asta Piil was born in 1935 in northern Estonia.  When the Soviet occupation began, she and her family were able to relocate to Sweden.   Eventually they made their way to Canada, on board the British ship The Walnut.  After an arduous journey, they arrived at Pier 21, in Halifax.  Asta and her family came to Toronto, where Asta worked on Spadina Avenue, and made her new life.
Asta was interviewed for this project in early 2014 by her grandson Matti.
