LONDON, ON – University of Western Ontario professor Alain Goldschlager recently received the Ontario Volunteer Service Award, recognizing 30 years of service with B’nai Brith Canada, the National Task Force on Holocaust Education and the League of Human Rights, according to the Western News.
Goldschlager started his volunteer work when he offered to do research during the trial of Ernst Zündel, after which his work evolved casting him in numerous B’nai Brith Canada leadership positions.
However, according to the Western News, Goldschlager wasn’t even the first in his home to win the honour. His then-17-year-old daughter, Arielle, won the award in 2008 for her efforts with the United Way.
“Normally, they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” Goldschlager told the Western News. “In this case, the tree grows not far from the apple.”
