Sol Nayman was born in Stoczek Wegrowski, Poland on November 5, 1935. In September 1939, when the Nazis attacked the town, Sol and his family fled to the nearby forest. They later ended up in Bialystok which was under Soviet control. They were then deported to a forced labour camp in Syktyvkar, deep in the Soviet Union. In 1944 they were shipped to a different labour camp in the Ukraine.
In 1948, Sol and his family were admitted to Canada, together with other Holocaust Survivors as part of the “Tailor Project” and settled in Montreal. Sol and his family moved to Toronto in 1969.
