The citation reads: The Jewish War Veterans of Canada are honoured to present this “Flames of Memory” Memorial Medal to Ellin Bessner in recognition of her extensive and outstanding work in researching and documenting the contribution of Canadian Jews in World War 2.
This medal serves to remind mankind of the Jewish involvement in the ongoing battle against hatred, bigotry and injustice. Together with people of good will, of all faiths, we will achieve our hopes and ambitions of peace, worldwide.”
