From the Uxbridge Cosmos to CBC News Network, Ellin was interviewed about her trip to Normandy and England during the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. And she wrote stories of her own about her D-Day experiences.
Ted Barris wrote about my mission to say memorial prayers at as many of the graves of the 70+ Canadian Jewish casualties of D-Day as possible during our tour.
The CBC News Network also interviewed me from Normandy on June 6 about the role of Canada’s Jewish soldiers in WWII, or at least, they sure tried to interview me! I was on a moving tour bus, and the wifi was initially fine, but we went into a dead zone, sadly, and the interview had to be called off after just a moment or two.
We also did an interview with CBC Radio’s Fresh Air host Nana aba Duncan on Saturday June 8 from on board a convoy of military vehicles careening through the Normandy countryside. I was in one military truck, while Canadian Jewish WWll hero, Dr. Bill Novick, was in a jeep somewhere at the head of the convoy on a different cellphone. Listen below:

A feature story that I wrote was published this week in the Canadian Jewish News. As they only used one photo, here is a bonus photo of Dr. Novick with his grandsons Jason, 30, and Daniel, 27 in Courseulles-sur-Mer, near the Juno Beach landing area.
