Obituary: Michal Hornstein was one of city's most renowned philanthropists

Thu, 2016-04-28 14:11

As a young man in Poland, Michal Hornstein was arrested by the Nazis and set to be deported to Auschwitz, the notorious death camp where thousands were executed during the Holocaust.

But Hornstein evaded his captors by jumping from a train and hiding in the forests of Czechoslovakia. Of the 70 people who tried to escape the Nazis on that day in 1943, only seven survived.

Were it not for this twist of fate, it’s unlikely Hornstein would have survived the war, immigrated to Canada and become one of the city’s most renowned philanthropists.
