- Canadian Army | Georgia Oral History

        Ralph L. Sacks, born in Toronto in November of 1917, was working a low-paying job in a lingerie factory but when he heard of the atrocities the Germans were committing against his fellow Jews; he felt the need to enlist. He served as a private in the Canadian Army, traveling all over Europe. Mr. Sacks recalls almost getting shelled on a near-daily basis, salvaging bits and pieces of Army vehicles, and trading Canadian "Bully Beef" for American SPAM.
