'Nobody's daughter' spoke up
Ann SZEDLECKI's Holocaust tale
Survivor told her story until the end
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Ann SZEDLECKI was a powerful and popular speaker for Toronto's Holocaust Centre.
"I think you are brave for standing up in front of a bunch of students to tell your story; it must have been hard to tell us some of those awful memories from your past," wrote one student from King City Secondary School.
"I don't think I would last as long as you did. Unlike me, you never gave up," wrote another.
"It opened my eyes and informed me about something I knew little about," a third student commented.
And a fourth wrote: "I believe that people like yourself, who struggled during the war, should speak out and share their stories."
But SZEDLECKI, who died of cancer May 7 at 79 and was buried on Mother's Day, had to be talked into telling her story. At 14 she was alone in Siberia, sentenced to six months of hard labour, her brother imprisoned for supposed political crimes, but she always said she was never in a concentration camp and therefore really wasn't a Holocaust survivor.
"At first she was a bit reluctant to talk, especially with an Auschwitz survivor like me," recalled Judy COHEN, who as co-chair of the Holocaust Centre's speaker bureau interviewed all potential speakers four or five years ago when SZEDLECKI was approached to tell her story.
"I said 'Ann, you lost your family. The end result is you are a Holocaust survivor of a different sort. It's good for people to know there are varied experiences.'"
That accomplished, COHEN had to then talk SZEDLECKI out of telling her story the way she was accustomed to: as an adventure story of a spirited young girl.
"I think she missed the point of her own suffering," said COHEN. "I told her to tell them the absolute truth and put it in an historical context, otherwise it is just a sad story. As I said to her 'You didn't enjoy the adventure.'"
SZEDLECKI listened and became a fine speaker, someone who understood that this kind of storytelling is more educational than cathartic.
"Her story became what it should be," said COHEN.
But first she wrote it down over the 10 years in which she attended Toronto author Sylvia WARSH's creative writing classes at the Bernard Betel Centre for Creative Living.
"My mother became a whole other person once she muttered the words 'I am a writer,'" said her daughter, Lynda KRAAR.
"She was a natural storyteller," said WARSH, who helped SZEDLECKI produce a 200-page autobiographical manuscript. "Look at page three, starting 'I am nobody's daughter.' It is great stuff."
Her manuscript begins as Ann FRAJLICH is leaving the Soviet Union after six years, leaving behind the unmarked grave of her brother Shoel -- dead at 23 from tuberculosis contracted as a result of being arrested for cooked-up political crimes, tortured and imprisoned -- and leaving with only a bag of dried bread, a jar of melted butter, a few clothes and size 12 shoes on her feet.
She is returning to her hometown of Lodz, Poland, even though her entire family had died in the Warsaw Ghetto.
"I am nobody's daughter, nobody's sister, nobody's granddaughter, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, aunt or cousin," she wrote. "My past is all gone, it disappeared."
In 1940, her worried parents had sent her off with her brother to the Soviet Union where they would work for one year to "wait out, hopefully, the short war," as she wrote. They were transported to Ridder (later renamed Leninogorsk) in western Kazakhstan, in Siberia, about 500 kilometres from the Chinese border.
And it was true, she was a bit giddy over what she considered to be a great adventure, excited to be going to a new place and to be out on her own. She didn't even mind when she was put to work painting bathhouses and enrolled in school. But after her brother was arrested, she was thrown out of the school and ended up hauling bricks, then later peeling potatoes and washing dishes in a mining cafeteria.
When she took three days off work without permission to bury her brother in the frozen spring of 1943, she was sentenced to six months of hard labour in appalling conditions at a labour camp. She lugged railway ties to build a new line, shovelled snow to clear roads, cut down trees and freed logs from a frozen river, but she was also carrying the grief of her brother's death and her guilt that she wasn't with him when he died.
After being released she volunteered to work underground in the mines, loading the ore into wagons. She hated it but, typically, wrote instead about "the miracle of my survival" in which she left the pile of ore she was sitting on to boldly ask the foreman for a cigarette -- and just as he handed her a smoke, the pile collapsed. "I could've been buried under tons of ore," she cheerfully concluded.
"I can even go so far as claiming that smoking saved my life."
(The children and students to whom she later told that story just loved it.)
"Since she was 14, my mother has been invincible," said KRAAR.
She married soon after the war, a man who was 11 years her senior, a concentration camp survivor with the numbers forever burned into his forearm. Abraham SZEDLECKI was "a wounded, traumatized and sad guy," according to his daughter and the marriage was never a happy one, although it lasted until her death.
The couple moved to Canada in 1953 after three years living in Israel and both went to work in the garment district. He pressed coats, she sewed on buttons. But it wasn't long before the boss promoted her to bookkeeping duties in the office and even though she'd had no experience doing books, she learned fast.
Although Abraham stayed in the factory, she left her job in 1965 when a store out on Albion Rd. became available.
"She took out a loan for $5,000 -- this little Holocaust lady with Grade 7 education -- when all her Friends were saying don't do it," her daughter recalled.
For years, her women's clothing store was the most successful business in the Shoppers World Mall on Albion Rd. KRAAR -- SZEDLECKI's only child and travel companion on holidays -- had married and moved to New Jersey by the time SZEDLECKI retired in 1990.
"They were close, closer than I could imagine," said Masha AMI, KRAAR's best friend since they met at camp when they were 11.
"I could see they were not only mother and daughter but Friends."
The Friendship was always volatile, however, as both were strong, talented and stubborn women who liked to do things their way.
As SZEDLECKI and her husband had long been leading separate lives although continuing to share their Bathurst Manor area bungalow, she threw herself into volunteer work.
She had always been involved with her Masada chapter of Hadassah-Women's International Zionist Organization, but she began driving for the Kosher Meals on Wheels program and serving on a committee managing funds provided to survivors through the Jewish Material Claims Against Germany Inc.
She kept up her writing and her talks until the last year of her life.
Her husband, suffering from Alzheimer's, moved into a care facility, but she stayed where she was determined to be, in her own home. KRAAR said she kicked into overdrive, often staying for weeks to care for her weakening mother in her home.
SZEDLECKI died in her home listening to show tunes and singer Theodore Bikel.
And as far as KRAAR is concerned, her mother's story isn't over. She's writing a show about her mother's life. One song is finished, which KRAAR, an amateur musician and publicist, performed in a small club in New York City recently. It was part of Mamapalooza, a celebration of mothers.

Hugh TAILOR/TAYLOR, Sailor (1920-2005)
Chief petty officer served in the Royal Canadian Navy through three periods in its development. In 1940, he was among the skeleton crew that saved a battle-damaged H.M.C.S. Saguenay
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page S8
Ottawa -- Leading Seaman Hugh TAILOR/TAYLOR had just awakened from a nap in the upper mess deck of H.M.C.S. Saguenay when a torpedo fired by the Italian submarine Argo slammed into her port side at 3: 55 a.m. on December 1, 1940.
The explosion, which blew a large hole in Saguenay's hull three metres from the bow on the port side, killed 21 of Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR's shipmates and started a fire in the fore lower mess deck. Eighteen others, some severely burned, were wounded.
It was the start of a desperate, five-day odyssey that quickly became a naval legend that endures to this day, and Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was right in the middle of it. He remembered that night for the rest of his life. "It was a helluva crash," he said in 1993. "The ship seemed to go up in the air and come down and just for a minute everything went silent. Then everything was on fire."
Within seconds, the crew of Saguenay, who had been escorting a convoy of 30 merchantmen from Gibraltar to Britain along with ships of the Royal Navy, ran to action stations. Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR, his three years of training in the Royal Canadian Navy kicking in, rushed to join his shipmates but slipped and fell ingloriously to the deck. That fall probably saved him from the burns suffered by those who ran over him in their haste to escape the blaze. He crawled instead. "All the flames were up high and I was laying on the floor. Actually, I think tripping was a godsend."
Miraculously, Saguenay, which had been steaming 300 nautical miles west of Ireland, was still afloat and moving at 12 knots. Damage, however, was severe. The stokers' and seamens' messes were gone and the bridge and wheelhouse had to be abandoned.
Yet the destruction failed to extinguish Saguenay's fighting spirit. Minutes later, the officer of the watch, Lieutenant Ralph WARWICK, spotted a submarine 800 metres off the port bow. Within seconds, a deck gun fired two 4.7-inch shells -- one short and one over the target -- before the submarine dived. At the time, no one knew that the sights on the turret had been knocked out of alignment by the explosion, making accurate fire impossible.
At dawn, H.M.S. Highlander arrived and removed 87 officers and ratings. Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR, who known as Buck, remained on board as one of the few nominated to take Saguenay to safety. It wasn't an easy assignment. Making a pitiful four knots with a fire still raging, Saguenay was forced to steam backward because of excessive vibrations. "Next day, she was relieved of the dead weight of a large section of her hull when it fell away, and she was able to increase speed to six knots," Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR wrote.
He also wondered if they'd ever make it. There were small fires to put out, the engine room was flooded and seawater had seeping into the oil tanks, contaminating the fuel. The temporary repairs to the hole in the hull also had to be monitored, which was one of the worst parts, said daughter Geraldine TAILOR/TAYLOR. " All his dead shipmates were there [inside] so he had to see them. It made him sick to his stomach."
Somehow, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and his shipmates worked miracles and kept their ship alive. "By December 4th, it was apparent that, barring an act of God or the enemy, Saguenay would be able to reach either Belfast or the Clyde."
One more ordeal remained for Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and Saguenay, which was commissioned on May 22, 1931, in Portsmouth, England, as the first river-class destroyer built for the Royal Canadian Navy. Early on December 4, a mine exploded underneath the ship but did little damage. Saguenay arrived in Barrow-in-Furness, in northwest England, the following day.
A naval board of enquiry concluded that bringing the ship back to port "represents a very considerable feat of seamanship and endurance, and is one that reflects great credit on her captain, officers and ship's company." Saguenay's captain, Commander Gus MILES, was awarded the Order of the British Empire.
Thirteen months later, at the beginning of January, 1942, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR lived though another dramatic episode when a week-long storm battered Saguenay as she escorted a convoy to Canada. About 400 nautical miles east of Newfoundland, "the wind rose rapidly to full hurricane force creating seas so violently confused that it was impossible to heave through in the normal manner," he wrote. "Hour after hour, in the log, the entries read, 'wind, 12; sea, 99,' which are the highest possible under any scale."
After two days of merciless pounding, Saguenay was "a bit of a mess." The storm had knocked out the main steering gear and Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and two other men were sent to the "Tilley flats" at the stern, where emergency apparatus allowed the ship to be steered by hand.
First, though, the men had to get there, which meant inching along about 30 metres of sea-swept deck. Waves as high as 25 metres towered over them. "It was very dangerous. They could have been washed overboard," recalled fellow crewman George BORGAL of Halifax. Seventeen hours later, after displaying "remarkable stamina and endurance," Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR and his men were relieved.
Saguenay's punishment continued after Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR left the ship. In November of 1942, a collision on a foggy night off Newfoundland detonated racks of depth charges and blew off the stern. Saguenay once again made port but never returned to convoy duty. After that, the stern was sealed off and the ship became a training vessel.
By then, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR was serving on H.M.C.S. St. Catherines. He was on duty on March 6, 1944, when the ship helped capture German submarine U-744. In an exhausting ordeal that lasted 32 hours, seven ships dropped 291 depth charges until finally U-744 surfaced, its guns blazing.
Buck TAILOR/TAYLOR was a Maritimer born with salt air in his lungs. Orphaned at an early age, he was raised by his Nova Scotia grandmother. At 15, he ran away to sea and joined the merchant marine, only to have his adventure meet an ignoble end when his ship ran aground in Bedford Basin at the north end of Halifax Harbour. It took him two days to walk home.
Two years later, on September 13, 1937, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR joined the navy. Over the next 25 years, he served on 10 ships and cruised all over the world before retiring in 1962 as a chief petty officer. During the Korean War, he served on H.M.C.S. Haida. His career spanned three distinct eras, starting with a tiny prewar navy of 1,800 men and 13 ships that mobilized on September 10, 1939, and evolved into a huge wartime force of 100,000 sailors and 400 fighting ships. During the 1950s, the navy expanded to 20,000 men and 50 modern ships. It was the navy's golden era and Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR helped build it.
Despite a career filled with drama, Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR never boasted of his exploits, Geraldine TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "He was one of the unsung heroes of the Royal Canadian Navy because he never talked much about his experiences. He just did his job."
Hugh Edward TAILOR/TAYLOR was born on August 19, 1920, in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia He died of cancer on July 22 in Kemptville, Ontario He was 84. He leaves his wife, Patricia, his daughters Geraldine, June and Kathryn, and his son James.
