"Among the people who have achieved eminence on the contemporary scene, in the arts, in the professions, in public service, in education, an unexpectedly large number (come from) Winnipeg, the North End. This book began as an inquiry into the forces that led to so rich a harvest of talent from one small section of an ordinary city on the edge of the Canadian prairie. In a series of eighteen reminiscences by former North-Enders, it attempts to reconstruct the quality of life in that polyglot community in the years immediately before and after World War II, and from the point of view of one distinctive ethnic group, the children of Jewish immigrants. Jews constituted only a small proportion of the North End's ethnic mix, but as a group they quickly reached a remarkable level of acculturation and achievement, setting the tone and pace for the entire enclave." Includes: Monty Hall, Allan Blye, Leo Yaffe, Maurice Victor, Samuel Freedman, Maxwell Cohen, David Orlikov, Sylvia Ostry, Bernard Ostry, Meyer Brownstone, Frank Shefrin, Shlomo Ben Adam, Isaac Horowitz, Adele Wiseman, Harry Freedman, Miriam Waddington, Jack Ludwig and John Hirsch. Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkle at top of front hinge, soft crease down rear flap.
