In memory of Mendel Good

In memory of Mendel Good

Posted by Second Story Press on

Second Story Press is saddened to hear of the loss of Mendel Good, one of the survivors whose story was memorialized in The Tailor Project.

 

 

Mendel has always shown strength and resilience. During his early life in Europe, Mendel endured seven years in numerous ghettos and both labour and concentration camps. His liberation in Ebensee by American troops was followed by three years in Austrian hospitals regaining his health. As a Holocaust survivor, Mendel was the sole survivor of his immediate family (parents and three siblings) and of his large extended family. At the age of 23 Mendel arrived in Ottawa under the sponsorship of the Garment Workers Program (Tailor Project). Mendel worked hard over 40 years and established the M. Good Tailor shop in the Byward Market, a business that is still open today. [x]

 

Thanks to people like Mendel, these stories of strength and resilience can be passed down from generation to generation. We are grateful for Mendel’s incredible work in uplifting his community, and his dedication to Holocaust education. Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time.
