Jewish Women on the Map - Southern Saskatchewan


Southern Saskatchewan Hirsch, SK

We know little about the Canadian pioneer woman known as Mrs. Zelickson. She settled in Southern Saskatchewan in the Jewish pioneer colony of Hirsch. In the year 1925, she responded to an on-going discussion in the magazine Nor'-West Farmer on the topic of what a woman was worth:

"... I am one of the oldest pioneers in Southern Saskatchewan, coming to this country in 1891 and settling with my husband in our present location in 1892. Having worked here for 33 years you will see in the latter part of this letter what I have done...."
