John BERNSTEIN, Founder Of Summer Camps: 1918-2004
He survived a catalogue of war adventures to spend 35 years directing children's camps that he ran with military precision
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 15, 2005 - Page S7
Toronto -- The greatest tumult and violence of the 20th century bred in John BERNSTEIN not hardness or distance, but a sunny, forward-looking disposition that manifested itself most openly in his love of children.
In almost cinematic fashion, Mr. BERNSTEIN survived the Russian Revolution, being a Jew in the Second World War-era Nazi prisoner of war and Swiss labour camps, and fighting in the French Resistance. In that upheaval, he acted and penned at least one play that was staged while he was incarcerated in supposedly neutral Switzerland.
Mr. BERNSTEIN had material galore for an autobiography that, by any measure, would have been a ripping yarn. He refused to commit it to paper, despite his family's entreaties. "He used to say people had better things to do than read about his life," said his daughter, Suzy.
He cared more about "his" kids. As director of the Jewish Camp Council of Toronto for 35 years, Mr. BERNSTEIN ensured that thousands of children frolicked their summers away in settings they might not otherwise have known.
Driven partly by having witnessed the displacement and despair children endured after the war, Mr. BERNSTEIN founded and ran several Ontario summer camps not only for kids, many of them from immigrant families, but for young mothers, seniors, single parents and the disabled.
It was his way, his family said, of helping to right a world that had gone mad a scant few years earlier.
And he never looked back. "He didn't dwell on his past. It was a very 'been there, done that' attitude," said his son David. "He was not the least bit nostalgic."
Vladimir BERNSTEIN (probably spelled " BERNSHTEYN") was born to merchant parents in a Black Sea coastal town just as the Bolsheviks were consolidating their power in Russia. The family fled the revolution to Paris, where Mr. BERNSTEIN attended school and was given a French name, Jean.
In the spring of 1940, as a young lieutenant, he and his French army unit tried in vain to defend a bridge against the advancing German army, their shells bouncing off the Nazis' superior Tiger tanks. He was captured near Paris and taken to a PoW camp in Germany, and survived thanks to his skills on the soccer pitch, which the enemy valued in games against other camps.
Toward the end of 1943, Mr. BERNSTEIN and a group of other inmates persuaded the camp tailor to remove the yellow stripe on their pant legs, which identified them as prisoners. Blending in with a group of visitors, they escaped. Mr. BERNSTEIN hopped a train that was carrying scrap metal to Switzerland.
The Swiss promptly arrested him and shipped him to a work camp in Kloten, a suburb of Zurich. There, he wrote a murder-mystery play, titled Crime Avenue Henri-Martin that was staged, complete with surviving playbill. Family lore has it that it was later presented in Paris, where it was panned in the papers by no less than the existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre.
No one knows how, but Mr. BERNSTEIN managed to return to France in 1944 and joined the Maquis, the dominant rural guerrilla band of the French Resistance. He never spoke of his activities, which probably involved sabotage and general harassment of the enemy.
At war's end, he was dispatched as a member of the occupying Allied Forces to Germany and Austria to flush out Nazis and to help repatriate displaced civilians. Working with a United Nations agency, and convinced it was not in Jewish refugees' best interest to be returned to Poland or Russia, he was able to get many people to Palestine.
The experience kindled in him a lifelong passionate Zionism (though he was fiercely anti-religious) and concern for the welfare of children, his family said. With his first wife and a young son in tow, Mr. BERNSTEIN immigrated to Canada in 1951, settling in Winnipeg. Invited to take over the Jewish Camp Council, a communally-funded agency, he arrived in Toronto a year later and set about bringing together several smaller sites to create Camp Northland-B'nai Brith on Moose Lake near Haliburton, Ontario He also established camps near Barrie and Parry Sound, Ontario, for mothers and their young children, and similar retreats for seniors, the mentally and physically disabled and other members of the Jewish community.
The experience allowed him to indulge his love for young children, his family said. "He would often bring children to camp who had just arrived in Canada," said his daughter. "He believed their parents needed the break."
"He was just in love with children."
Indeed, in his neatly typewritten notes on his philosophy of camping, Mr. BERNSTEIN observed that "camp is a child's world. The camp atmosphere enhances his sense of worth as a human being."
A dapper man, Mr. BERNSTEIN was known for touring his camps in crisp tennis whites. "He was a great player," related his son, who was a tennis instructor at one of the facilities. "Imagine your father beating you at tennis, and you're the instructor. He also chain-smoked and I never saw him winded."
Famously, Mr. BERNSTEIN's camps were run with military precision, especially arrivals and departures. Meal times were often signalled by a siren.
And rarely could he go anywhere without being recognized by former campers. "They were always coming up to him and saying hello," said his son. "Even if he didn't remember their name, he'd greet them."
"He put his faith in the next generation."
John BERNSTEIN was born in Nikoliev, Russia, on July 24, 1918 and died in Toronto on November 24, 2004. He was 86. He leaves his wife of 48 years, Dr. Vera Rose BERNSTEIN, a retired pediatric cardiologist; children Michael, David and Suzy, and five grandchildren.

AIKENHEAD, Helen
Died peacefully on April 21, 2005 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm, British Columbia after a two month struggle with lung cancer. Helen was born December 31, 1925 in Calgary, Alberta. As a teenager she moved with her parents to Saint John, New Brunswick where she attended high school and began a journalism career with the Saint John Telegraph Journal during wartime. The antics of some of the colourful characters on staff were a favorite subject of many of her hilarious stories in later years. She moved to Toronto in 1945 and worked in the advertising department of Eaton's where she formed many life long Friendships. She met Bruce on a blind date set up by a friend in 1946 and they were married the following year. While Bruce was studying at the University of Western Ontario they lived in London where she continued her journalism career at the London Free Press. They subsequently lived in Kitchener Waterloo, Montreal, Brampton, Newport News, Virginia and Ottawa where Bruce's work in the space program led them. They retired to Salmon Arm, British Columbia in 1992. During the sixties, she took a keen interest in overseas students studying at McGill University and she opened her doors, offering a "home away from home" for many. In so doing, she created a vibrant, multicultural, economical atmosphere for her family and formed many close ties all over the world, she visited many of these former students in their home countries, which culminated in a world tour in 1983. Helen's curiosity, compassion and broad interests took her to many places and introduced her and her family to diverse and valued experiences. Her deep sense of compassion and fairness influenced many of her activities from politics to the arts. She was gregarious, generous and hospitable. Her love of nature and delight in animals continued to be a great source of pleasure.
She is survived by her husband Bruce, son Stephen (Halina) of Toronto, daughters Kathleen BERNZ (Louis) of St. Albert, Alberta, Jane SWAINE (Ralph) of Toronto, Elizabeth AIKENHEAD of Toronto, Barbara NEWTON (Brad) of Vernon, and seven grandchildren - Li, Patrick, Jennifer, Julia, Zoe, Claire, Reid and one great grandchild, Melody. About a month before her death, Helen wrote the following message: "I received news of my illness in early February and I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to say my piece. I've had so many great trips abroad and the journey these past few weeks has been another trip down memory lane, to venture in the sentimental. How else to describe what pleasure I have had remembering happy times, often finding myself laughing out loud as I recalled some of the funny moments I shared with many of you. A bientot, Helen." The family deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown by the many Friends, neighbours and caregivers who have helped so much during the last couple of months. We are so fortunate to have had this time with Helen and to have enjoyed her wit, intellect, candour and humanity all along. A small gathering of Friends and family in celebration of her memory was held at home on Saturday afternoon, April 23.

I Remember -- Gordon BELL
By Ron BERRESFORD, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page S9
Barrie, Ont -- Reverend Ron BERRESFORD of Barrie, Ontario, writes about Dr. Gordon BELL, whose obituary appeared on June 30.
Meeting Dr. BELL as a student in addictions was to be drawn into his personal circle by his down-home personality. His boundless energy and enthusiasm was contagious and motivating. You always felt included and valued. He took a personal interest in our progress, and the pride of a favourite uncle figure in our achievements which, in my case, he continued to follow and recognize into the '90s.
As a world leader in addictions, he ranks with such Canadian medical heroes as Banting, Best, Penfield, Osler, McClure, Shouldice, Selye and Bethune. It is sad that the symbol of his great achievements, the Donwood Institute, is currently for sale to the highest bidder, which will probably result in its demolition.
