Timber Chief Executive Officer survived Holocaust
Hungarian, who was saved by a Swedish diplomat, died at 105
His son Steven called him a 'man of extraordinary courage and caring'
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Lewis FRIEDLICH, a Hungarian timber executive who survived Nazi persecution with help from Raul Wallenberg, has died in Toronto at the age of 105.
He leaves his wife of nearly 80 years, Aurelia.
"He was a man of extraordinary courage and caring," his elder son, Steven, said yesterday.
FRIEDLICH was born in Budapest on December 13, 1900. Starting as an office boy in 1918, he worked his way up in the timber business, becoming chief executive officer of a Swiss-Hungarian timber company, Nasic Corp. It was the largest lumber firm in Central Europe at the time, with sawmills in several countries.
In 1927, he met his wife on a Danube River excursion boat out of Vienna.
"It was a long boat ride," his son said. "There was a group of girls. One caught his eye. By the time he got to Budapest, he decided this is the girl he's going to marry." Soon after, he did.
The couple had two sons, Steven and Tom.
All was going well until the outbreak of World War 2. When Germany invaded Hungary in 1944, FRIEDLICH was expelled to a forced labour camp.
He was allowed to return to the company for a period because his skills were needed for the war effort. But he was again sent into forced labour, this time with Steven.
"We were taken to the front line to dig trenches to stop the advance of the Russian army," Steven recalled. "They assigned each of us a portion of the trench that we had to dig that day. Anybody who did not dig his portion was shot. To my father, it was more important to look after me than himself."
One day, Swedish diplomat Raul Wallenberg -- later to become known as the saviour of tens of thousands of Jews threatened by Nazi genocide -- arrived at the trenches with a Hungarian officer. All prisoners with a Swedish passport were asked to step forward.
Because of his connections at the Swiss-Hungarian firm, FRIEDLICH had acquired Swedish papers, and he and his son accompanied Wallenberg back to Budapest.
The whole family managed to survive the war, but Stalinist persecution followed. One night in 1949, FRIEDLICH, his wife and younger son escaped the capital and walked across the border into Austria.
By then, his son Steven had immigrated to Canada. He had been studying in Switzerland and had come to Toronto at the urging of a classmate and fellow refugee, Peter MUNK, who went on to found one of the world's largest mining companies, Barrick Gold.
The other FRIEDLICH members followed in 1950. On his arrival at the age of 49, the patriarch and former executive who had run sawmills throughout Central Europe, took a job at Loblaws, carrying grocery bags to people's cars.
Later, he found his way back into the lumber business and eventually bought Grandor Lumber Inc., the retail lumber firm. He sold the company in 1978.
Both sons graduated from the University of Toronto, Steven in engineering, Tom in medicine.
"He was not a rich man," Steven said of his father. "He kept working his way up. His first priority was education (for his sons)."
Lewis FRIEDLICH died Monday in his sleep. Aurelia turned 99 last month. His sister Sara, who lives in Israel, is 104.

BOYD, Minnie Marian (née SWANTON)
Minnie Marian was born on April 15, 1921 to Emily and William SWANTON who resided on the East Back Line, Markdale. She was the younger sister to her brother George who was five years her senior. The four were a tight knit farming family who grew up with strong values and the hearty Grey county work ethic.
Minnie finished high school and then went off to teacher's college. She began her teaching career in a one room schoolhouse in Ceylon with grades one through eight; quite a challenge for a newly graduated young teacher. When she went to Toronto to teach, she tackled this job with determination and passion and enjoyed the many opportunities it presented.
It was during this time that she met her soul mate for life local Flesherton boy, George BOYD. They were married in July 1944 with the entire Boyd and Swanton family in attendance. George and Minnie had three children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy. Minnie was devoted to her family. Whether as a homemaker to a young family or as the accountant/receptionist at the family business, Boyd Bros. Motors, Minnie excelled. She also made time for many pursuits including sewing, painting and cooking. The family enjoyed great love and support from each other.
Minnie and George had a great enthusiasm for life. They both enjoyed impromptu parties with Friends and family and Minnie was always ready with lots of food and stories to tell. They had many great adventures through the family trips around the world and even day trips in the area. Minnie loved to dance and it was usually George and Minnie who were first up to "cut a rug" on the dance floor. George was the love of her life and the two were inseparable until almost three years ago when George passed away. Although she suffered greatly from heart-break and arthritis in the final years, Minnie never let the pain dampen her positive spirit.
The service celebrating Minnie's life took place on Wednesday, February 15 at the Fawcett Funeral Home in Flesherton. Minnie's daughter-in-law, Kim BOYD composed and delivered a wonderful tribute to Minnie. A second loving tribute was written by her daughter, Wendy and read by Reverend Martin GARNISS. The Boyd family appreciated the beautiful music of David FRIES, the religious message of Reverend Martin GARNISS and the excellent lunch served by the ladies of Flesherton's Saint John's United Church. Thanks are also extended to the pallbearers Don BRODIE, Jack DAVIS, Kevin DAY, Tyler DAY, Bob EDWARDS and Jim WILLIAMS.
Relatives and Friends will remember Minnie's generosity, kind spirit and keen sense of humour. She will be greatly missed by her children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy, her daughter-in-law Kim, her son-in-law Kevin, her six grandchildren, Lindsay, Ferris, Kelsey, Melanie, Tyler and Samantha and her loving relatives and Friends.
The Boyd family give thanks for Minnie's life and are comforted to know that she will once again be with her one true love, George. Minnie's spirit will remain in the family's hearts and minds forever.

CHAMBERLAIN, Elizabeth Anne (née SCRACE)
Elizabeth CHAMBERLAIN passed away suddenly at Markdale on Monday, March 13, 2006 in her 65th year. Elizabeth Anne SCRACE was born March 7, 1942 in Toronto (North York). Elizabeth was the daughter of Bessie (CAIRNS) and the late Walter SCRACE. She was the eldest of a family of four, the sister of Catherine, David and the late Alan. Elizabeth married Melville Thomas CHAMBERLAIN in Rexdale on June 12, 1965. Their first home was in Arthur, Ontario in Wellington County and in 1968 they were transferred to Thunder Bay. Her children were all born in Thunder Bay, Paul Thomas (Monica) on February 15, 1970, Gayle Elizabeth (Neil BILLSON) on January 9, 1972 and Glenn Robert (Marta) on August 3, 1973. Elizabeth was an organized and self-sufficient person who had a serene passion for life and a determination to always do her best. In her younger years she was a Girl Guide and Ranger. She loved Guides and maintained Friendships with three special Girl Guide Friends throughout her life even though they now live in British Columbia, New Mexico and Barrie. The group of four all received the highest award in Guiding, “The Girl Guides Gold Cord”. Elizabeth also enjoyed music. She studied piano and played clarinet in her High School marching and stage bands and in the University of Guelph band. During the past two years she learned to play the guitar as part of the midweek music night at Annesley United Church. Elizabeth was a dedicated student and received excellent grades throughout the years. Following graduation from Thistletown Collegiate Institute in Rexdale she had the vision of pursuing a Science degree and enrolled at the University of Guelph as a member of the class of ‘65 Ontario Agricultural College. She was one of eight women in a predominately male class of 200 students. She graduated in May 1965 with a major in Chemistry. Following University graduation and her marriage to Mel, Elizabeth attended the Ontario College of Education and began her teaching career at Mount Forest District High School teaching Grades 12 and 13 Chemistry, Grade 13 Physics and Grade 10 Science. Later she was a supply teacher in Thunder Bay, Wellington County, London, and in Grey County until the time of her passing. Elizabeth had become a full time Mom to her three children in Thunder Bay and continued to stay home with the children for several years after the family returned to Wellington County in 1977. As all mothers realize this was the greatest, most challenging and rewarding career of all. She became involved on the local nursery school board, taught Sunday school, and was a Girl Guide leader and a Beaver leader. Elizabeth was a loving, patient, encouraging and guiding hand to her children. She passed on these traits and her sense of vision and determination to her three children. Her latest pride and joy was her four beautiful grandchildren: Tressa and Thomas BILLSON, children of Gayle and Neil, and Bernadette and Sophia CHAMBERLAIN, daughters of Paul and Monica. Following the transfer of Elizabeth and Mel to Markdale from London in 1995, Elizabeth continued with community involvement, she volunteered as fitness instructor at Participation Lodge, continued to promote wellness and the importance of nutrition and healthy lifestyle to Friends and was an active member of the Denim N' Lace Square Dance Club in Flesherton. Elizabeth's greatest joy since moving to Markdale was as a member of the Annesley United Church Choir. She always looked forward to Thursday night choir practice and Sunday service. Her love of music and the choir was central to her funeral service on Saturday, March 18th. The service was conducted by Rev. Mark R. WAUGH. The Annesley Choir sang as their Anthem “On Eagles Wings”. Selected hymns were “Part of the Family”, “Jesus Loves Me”, and “In the Bulb There Is a Flower”. Words of comfort and hope by Mark WAUGH comforted the family. Words of Remembrance were presented by Colleen CARRIERE and Catherine BULLEN, cousin and sister of Elizabeth respectively. Prelude and postlude organ selections were beautifully performed by David FRIES, Director of Music. Pallbearers were sons Paul and Glenn CHAMBERLAIN, son-in-law Neil BILLSON, and nephews Keith BULLEN, Craig CHAMBERLAIN and David CHAMBERLAIN. Following committal at Markdale Cemetery a wonderful lunch was served by the Annesley United Church ladies. Elizabeth was a beautiful, loving and caring lady, always dedicated to her family and to her Lord, Jesus Christ.
