From the Archives:D-Day Vet


Carl Dubin, back row, far right, stands next to his Hebrew Sunday School teacher Mr. Barenholtz, Kirkland Lake, circa. 1930.  Dubin was born in 1922 in Belarus. He moved to Canada at the age of two and was raised in Kirkland Lake, Ont. In his 2010 interview with The Memory Project​, Carl describes his motivation for enlisting in the Canadian Armed Forces in 1941. “My father was a veteran of the first world war and spoke perfect German. We used to listen to the shortwave radio of Hitler ranting away about the Jews and it would make me so furious that I wanted to try do something about it. So I decided I was going to enlist in the services and chose the air force because I always liked airplanes.” Listen to Carl’s story at the memory project
