Fishel (Phil) Goldig is a volunteer and speaker at the Montreal Holocaust Museum.
Born in 1933 in Mielnica, Poland (currently Ukraine), he and his family were forced to move to the Borszczow ghetto at the beginning of 1942. While most of his family eventually escaped the ghetto and lived in the forest for several months, he and several family members were taken in by a Ukrainian farmer where they lived in a hole in a potato cellar for 22 months. After being liberated, his family spent two years in a DP camp in Pocking before immigrating to Canada. After settling in Montreal Fishel went to yeshiva, studied literature, art and singing, and pursued a career in business.
