Max Shindler died on June 16th, 2014, at the age of 82, in Toronto, Canada. He was born on August 7th, 1931, in Liverpool, England, to Rose and Edward, both Jews of Polish descent. He was the oldest child of three; Alan Shindler is his brother, and Reva Berman, his sister. Max lived in Liverpool until he was evacuated to Wales during the Second World War; here he first encountered open anti-Semitism; on many occasions he was forced to eat his meals in the outhouse on the farm where he lived; such traumatizing incidents left lifelong scars on his psyche. He would never forget the humiliation he felt due to this abuse. Many of his relations were executed at Buchenwald, or died in the boxcars before arriving at Buchenwald. Max left his family home during his late teens, and traveled to Israel, where he became a member of the Israeli Army, and later joined England's Royal Air Force as a member of a bomb disposal unit. He was also head of advertising at Avon in Reading, England, and later worked for many years with his wife as a visual merchandiser. He married Pearl, also born in Liverpool, England, in 1957, on the Isle of Man. A year later his daughter Nicola was born, and three years after, Simone; his youngest child, Nigel, was born in the year 1964; he was loyal, generous, and nurturing, toward his three children, and all his grandchildren. Max Shindler had an immense appreciation for the arts in various forms; he played the classical guitar; became a talented photographer; he studied various languages; became fluent in German, Hebrew, and Yiddish; he loved opera, and classical music. He had a passion for learning throughout his life, and read voraciously on every topic one can imagine. Nigel Shindler PhD, the recipient of three Doctorate Degrees, is the author of the five volume "Love Is the Nature of Existence," "The Boy and The Tower," "Watching From A Tower," "Tree of Life," "The Nature of Existence Vol. II," and sixteen collections of art.
