ARNOLD, Alice (née BARBER) (1932-2006)
Passed away peacefully at Grand River Hospital, Freeport Health Centre on Thursday, April 6, 2006. Loving wife of 48 years to Glen ARNOLD. Mother to Zoë (Mike,) Eve (Tim,) Gwyneth (Murray,) and David (Diana). Grandmother to Sarah, Laura, Eric, Katie, Emily, Angie, Ellen, Hannah and Grace. Sister of Mary CZERNA and Rose BRENNAND (Derrick.) Aunt of Robert, Jeremy, and Victoria. Will be remembered by great nieces Rose and Sophie, sister-in-law of Gwen (Ziggy) KIRCHMEYER and her family Janet (Clyde,) Kathy, and Andrew. Great Aunt of Robbie and Michael. Predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth Hannah (THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON) BARBER (1896-1994,) and Charles FitzRoy (Lord Southampton, 1867-1958, M.B.E. (Debrett's Peerage page 678) and daughter-in-law of the late Eva ARNOLD. Alice went to Harrogate Ladies College, 1940-1949, a private girl's school in Cumbria, England where she studied drama, piano, and violin. Alice immigrated to Canada in 1955 to join her sister, Mary, a speech therapist in Toronto. She met Glen, her future husband to be, at a Club in Toronto in a quiet game of 'knock up' (tennis, anyone?). Alice was part of a generation of women that we now identify as, 'Stay-At-Home Moms', and we became better people as the result of the examples she set in our home: her kindness, generosity and unconditional love. These are some of the qualities she has passed on to us and it is now our turn to live by these examples. Her great strength of character will sustain us in the times ahead. Alice's interests included tennis, music, crafts, and camping with the family, which she referred to fondly as her, 'wilderness experience'. Later, in her return to the work force in the early eighties, she became a member of the Breast Cancer Screening Study Team at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto. Years later, in a move to British Columbia, she became a member of the Quilters Guild of Kelowna and had her work exhibited in many of their shows. Friends and family are blessed with examples of her talent and we treasure these gifts she has left us with. Not for one minute will Alice allow us to forget her beautiful spirit and the unconditional love she gave everyone in her time with us! The Arnold family will receive relatives and Friends at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener (519-7498467) from 11: 30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11, 2006, followed by a celebration of Alice's life at 1: 30 p.m. in the Chapel of the Funeral Home. Cremation has taken place. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Hopespring Cancer Support Centre would be appreciated by the family. (Cards available at the Funeral Home).

The family would like to express their special thanks to the many caring people, under the direction of Doctor Elliot WILLIAMSON and the nurses at the Freeport Palliative Care Centre at the Grand River Hospital.

Marion ANDRÉ, Theatre Director (1920-2006)
The Holocaust shaped the artistic vision of a Pole who came to Canada and founded two dynamic theatre companies, writes Sandra MARTIN. His productions showcased significant moral and political issues
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Marion ANDRÉ was a triple threat in the theatre: a writer, a director and an impresario. But his greatest contribution was as founding artistic director of Montreal's Saidye Bronfman Centre and Toronto's Theatre Plus, a company that in its ambitions was a forerunner of the Soulpepper Theatre Company.
"He was a sparkling ignited soul" and "a real mentor for me," said actress Lynn Griffin, who performed in A Doll's House, Antigone and The Lark at Theatre Plus. "He was very demanding to work with," she said, adding she was happy for the training and discipline he instilled in her because "you can often get by being really lazy" as an actor. "He challenged himself and everybody around him to bring their work up to his inspiration."
Calling Mr. ANDRÉ a "very welcoming man with a very generous heart," said Robin PHILLIPS, former artistic director of the Stratford Festival. What he remembered was not so much the quality of the productions that Mr. ANDRÉ mounted at Theatre Plus but the attitude behind them. "There was a real need to communicate beyond the play," an obsession that Mr. PHILLIPS thinks originated in the Polish underground theatre where Mr. ANDRÉ worked after the Second World War -- where the experience of going to the theatre was a much more engaged and political act than simply being entertained for a couple of hours. "He always looked behind the easy criticism to a connection and empathy with the intention of a work."
Marian Andrzej TENENBAUM was born in Le Havre, France, while his Polish parents, Emil and Renata (née LIEBLING) TENENBAUM, were studying at the university. After earning their degrees, the TENENBAUMs returned to Lvov in southeastern Poland (now part of Ukraine), where they worked as pharmacists and had a second child, Hanka.
After the signing of the German-Soviet pact in 1939 and the subsequent Soviet invasion of Poland from the east, the Jewish population in Lvov doubled when 100,000 refugees fled from the Nazi onslaught in the west. When the Germans occupied Lvov after their invasion of the Soviet Union in June of 1941, the TENENBAUMs' family home and other property were confiscated.
More than 6,000 Jews were killed in Lvov in two pogroms before the Germans established a ghetto in the northern part of the city in November of 1941. With the help of Christian Friends, Marian obtained false papers for himself and his mother in the Polish name of CZERNIECKI, and that enabled them to live outside the ghetto. He joined the Polish underground and smuggled messages in and out of the Lvov ghetto (where his father and his sister had been forced to live) while he was ostensibly collecting scrap metal from the Jews for the German war effort.
In March of 1942, the Germans began deporting Jews to the Belzec death camp. By August, more than 65,000 Jews had been transported to the camp and murdered. Ten months later, the Germans shut down the ghetto, killing many thousands of people in the process. Marian never found out the fate of his father and sister, but he always believed they had been killed in the camps.
Passing as a Christian, Marian had escaped the deportations and made his way to Warsaw, but he was arrested because of his work in the underground and sent to a German camp. He escaped after the Allied invasion of Normandy in 1944 and was recruited by the British army because of his linguistic skills in Polish, German, French and English. By the end of the war, he was in France, where he learned from the Red Cross that his mother was alive. He returned to Poland, found her and, together, moved to The Hague in 1946. Working as a cultural attaché for the Polish legation, he met and married his first wife, a Dutch woman, with whom he had a son, Tom.
In 1950, they moved to Warsaw, where he began making documentaries and translating American plays for Polish radio. Three years later, he started a small children's theatre called Kleks. His marriage broke up and he and his mother emigrated to Montreal in 1957, sponsored by his uncle.
In Montreal, Marian Andrzej CZERNIECKI shortened his name to the more masculine and French-sounding Marion ANDRÉ (a change he legalized in 1980). He found a series of jobs: helping to establish a drama program for the Protestant School Board, directing plays on a freelance basis at McGill University, writing for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television and starting a theatre company called Studio Six and another one called The Freelancers. He also married a second time and had another son, Krystian.
In 1967, Minda, Phyllis, Edgar and Charles BRONFMAN, children of Samuel BRONFMAN of the Seagram Distillery fortune, established the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts, as the cultural branch of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. Montreal Jewish Community Centres, in honour of their mother's 70th birthday. Mr. ANDRÉ was appointed inaugural director of performing arts and subsequently became executive director and artistic director. It was at the Saidye Bronfman Centre that he met Ina RUBIN, a dancer and teacher who had been brought in to help with the dance program. They married in 1970, and he later adopted her two children, John and Jennifer, from a previous marriage.
After a traumatic youth, Mr. ANDRÉ seemed to be prospering both artistically and romantically. Coming from Poland, where theatre had always been a forum for showcasing controversial ideas, he tended to present thought-provoking, sometimes even disturbing, material about moral and political issues. In 1971, Mr. ANDRÉ scheduled a production of Robert Shaw's post-Holocaust drama, The Man in the Glass Booth, a play about the Adolf Eichmann trial in Israel in 1961 that raises questions about Jewish passivity as well as dealing with German guilt. Some Holocaust survivors and members of the Jewish Y were deeply offended by the play's content. There was a huge controversy that manifested itself in telephone campaigns against the ANDRÉs and others, and threats to torch the theatre. Afraid of incipient violence and overly sensitive to the feelings of a survivor's group, the board closed the play before it opened.
Mr. ANDRÉ quit as artistic director in protest because "he felt it was important that they shouldn't knuckle under to this kind of fear," said Ina, his wife.
"I have nothing but deep feelings of compassion for the victims of Nazi oppression," Mr. ANDRÉ said in an interview with the Montreal Gazette at the time. "Theatre must not fear controversy, but consider it a necessary ingredient of its existence. I have a profound feeling of revulsion when intimidation is used, or when any group goes to extremes to have its own views prevail."
The aftermath of the 1970 F.L.Q. crisis added to Mr. ANDRÉ's unhappiness over the furor at the Bronfman Centre, and he and his family moved to Toronto, where he was given teaching work in the theatre department at York University. Within a year, he had seized the opportunity presented by the unused smaller theatre space at the St. Lawrence Centre in the summer and launched Theatre Plus in what was then the Jane Mallet, and now the Bluma Appel, theatre. As he said at the time, "People don't turn their brains off in the summer."
His statement of purpose was to "present plays from a national and international repertoire that reflect the social, political and moral problems of our times." Over the next 13 years, he mounted 56 productions, many of them premieres of modern Canadian, European and American plays. A few of his choices were written and directed by himself, which caused some critics such as Matthew Fraser to label him "self-indulgent" and Ray Conlogue to argue that artistic directors should have to do what every other writer does: "Convince somebody else that the play is worth producing."
Nevertheless, The Aching Heart of Samuel Kleinerman, a play Mr. ANDRÉ wrote and directed, was voted the best production of the 1984-85 season by Theatre Plus subscribers. He was given the Toronto Drama Bench Award for distinguished contribution to Canadian theatre in 1985, the year that Meniere's disease, a disorder of the inner ear that causes extreme vertigo and nausea, forced him to step down. His health continued to trouble him and, by 1988, he needed a quadruple heart bypass.
Mr. ANDRÉ continued to write, always using the Holocaust, the central experience of his life, as his theme in novels Maria B. (1990) and The Battered Man (1996), both published by Mosaic Press. By then, he had been diagnosed with Lewy body disease, a progressive dementia that is accompanied by hallucinations and has symptoms similar to both Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Eventually, Mrs. ANDRÉ could no longer care for him; he went into a retirement home, and then a nursing home.
Marion ANDRÉ was born in Le Havre, France, on January 12, 1920. He died in Toronto of complications from Lewy body disease on May 9. He was 86. He is survived by his wife, Ina, four children and six grandchildren.
