Steiman, Esther

Esther Steiman immigrated to Canada from Poland in 1935- a move that would forever alter her life and the life of her family. Arriving in Toronto, Esther and her family experienced many of the traditional hardships of the immigrant experience. Estherís story also gives a glimpse as to what it was like to learn about the Holocaust as a Polish Jew living in Canada. While Esther and her immediate family escaped Poland before it was too late, she recounts the stories of other family members who were not as lucky.

Esther discussed her experience with her granddaughter, Sydney in 2014.
