Memorable Manitobans: Hymie Litwack (c1906-1992)
Born at Odessa, Russia [now part of Ukraine], around 1906, son of Abraham Litwack (c1866-?) and Dora Litwack (c1871-?), he immigrated to Canada with his family in 1913 and took up residence at 539 King Street in Winnipeg by 1916. He attended the University of Manitoba in the mid-1920s and taught at Highland School (1933-1934) and Purple Bank School (1934, Principal). Around the 1940s, he moved to Quebec, and died at Montreal in July 1992.
