Dear Stenge family I was deeply saddened by Margrit’s passing, she was a good friend back at Pinegrove and then at bridge in CSL. Please accept my deepest condolences, she will be greatly missed.

Olivia Clutterbuck - 26 days ago

My deepest sympathies to the family. I met Margrit in 2015 through the Montreal Holocaust Museum. She kindly skyped with my dancers who were performing a ballet piece about the Holocaust. Margrit stayed a part of my life ever since, corresponding regularly by email and meeting in person in 2019. I will forever remember her. While we were only in each other's lives for a short while, she meant so much to me. I'm sending all her family and friends love and prayers.

Dear Helen, Mottie, and the entire Stenge family: It is unbelievably sad that I am once again writing a condolence note, now about your Mom. From reading all the notes, she was indeed a wonderful and very smart lady. It was most interesting to hear her life story told by the Montreal Holocaust Museum. Stay strong.

Dear Marvin and family - My sincere sympathy on the passing of your Mother and your Father. My memories of them are wonderful. We spent many years together as very good friends. There is no way to replace a Mother. I do hope that in time, it will be the good memories you will retain of both your parents. They were quite special.

Fran and Barry Rishikof - 28 days ago

Dear Marvin, Helen & families, the loss of a parent is always sad but to lose both mom and dad in such a short period of time is heartbreaking. I have many memories of babysitting at their home and then later Mom and I played bridge together for several years. May your memories sustain you at this sad time.

Montreal Holocaust Museum - 28 days ago

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing Margrit Rosenberg Stenge z''l, Holocaust survivor, exceptional volunteer speaker, and cherished friend of the Museum. Margrit was born in 1928 in Cologne, Germany, and her family was forced to flee the country in the late 30s due to increasing antisemitism. They tried to rebuild their lives in Oslo, Norway, but were forced to move several times due to the Nazi invasion and persecution of Jews. After hiding in and around the remote mountain village of Rogne with the assistance of their neighbours, Margrit and her family eventually escaped to neutral Sweden with the help of two young Norwegian students. She met her beloved husband Steven in 1948. They married a year later and moved to Montreal in 1951. Margrit was an outstanding volunteer speaker at the Montreal Holocaust Museum since 2011, where she shared her story with thousands of students. She was particularly gifted at speaking to young people. She was profoundly dedicated to Holocaust education and often stated that she wanted to share her story for as long as she could. As recently as last week, Margrit was in contact with the Museum about Holocaust remembrance projects. Margrit’s remarkable story will live on through the thousands of young people whose lives she touched, the recorded testimony she entrusted to the Museum, her memoir written with the Azrieli Foundation, and most notably, with her beloved children, six grandchildren and twenty-two great grandchildren. As her touching photos in the exhibition Witnesses to History, Keepers of Memory depict, Margrit was a woman of great kindness, warmth, and elegance. We will always remember her generosity, compassion, dedication to family, and her unshakable belief in the importance of Holocaust education. She will be greatly missed. The Board of Directors, volunteers, and professional team extend their sincere condolences to the Stenge family, Marvin (Allegra), Helen (Murray), as well as their grandchildren, and great-grandchildren during this difficult time. May her memory be a blessing and a source of inspiration. Richard Schnurbach, President and Daniel Amar, Executive Director
