That's my uncle in the lab coat!

Mia Weinberg - Family or friend of a former internee

Unknown

I just visited the “Enemy Aliens” exhibit at the Vancouver Holocaust Centre and was surprised to see a photograph of my uncle: Bernd Weinberg sitting on a table in a lab coat . It is in the section on New Lives. After his internment in Canada and then further studies in Europe he returned to Canada and raised his family in Kanata. He was a chemist and worked for the federal government. He was at the forefront of research into canola.
