BRANDT, Tadeusz (Ted)

Holocaust Survivor

Peacefully, at the age of 102, Tadeusz (Ted) Brandt passed away of natural causes. He was a survivor of the holocaust and a shining light to us all. Loving husband of the late Anne Price Z’’L. Devoted father and father-in-law of Cynthia (Cindy) and Eli of Toronto, and Elaine. Incredible and proud Zaida of his grandchildren Michael and Jennifer, Shauna, Jonathan and Eliana, Brian and Tamara, Yoel and Dina and Uri and his great grandchildren Sarah, Naomi, Noah, Zacki, and Nora. He was a special example of perseverance and left us with many special memories.

The patriarch of our family, Ted was a survivor of the Majdanek, Auschwitz, and Buchenwald concentration camps. In 1945, Ted was liberated from the Buchenwald concentration camp and determined to move on from the horrors. With tenacity and resolve, Ted arrived in Canada in 1947. It was there where he met Anne and began bearing the fruits to a beautiful Jewish family. With Anne, Cynthia, and Elaine by his side, Ted was able to thrive. He started his own garment business and concentrated on his passions. Ted was a proud musician/vocalist and member of the Chevra Kadisha Choir. He was a devoted member of the Young Israel of Montreal synagogue where he was a committed participant to both the services and classes. He was delighted to attend the Daf Yomi every day.

Many thanks to his caretaker Camay and the Waldorf, who really helped him enjoy his last few years. A private graveside service will take place. Shiva private.
