20160420 - George Scott


On our post-minyan Wednesday walk we met George Scott and his son Martin. George and Jonathan have been good friends for many years, including having weekly lunches together as part of the Romeo group, (Retired Old Men Eating Out,) and also belonging to the same meditation group. Arthur also is friends with George through the Romeo group.
George is from a prominent Hungarian-Jewish family (the Jungreises.). He was born into a loving family but circumstances led him to growing up in an orphanage and then, at 14, landing in Auschwitz. After liberation he came to Canada, worked successfully to earn a living, married and has three children and seven grandchildren. Never forgetting his past, George has spoken to schools about the Holocaust, believes in the goodness of people, and never fails to help whenever he can.
He is a very occasional member of our morning minyan.
