Dates of existence



Ginda Kalujna Rosenblatt was born in 1891. She was a graduate of the Women's Medical Institute of Saint Vladimir University, Kiev. After receiving her degree, Dr. Rosenblatt was conscripted by and served in the Russian Army from 1917-1918, at first as an intern and then as a captain. She was assigned to the 266th Regiment, working at the military hospital in Ostrog, Ukraine, and was later assigned a post closer to the front. The regiment was constricted by economic difficulties, transportation difficulties, and growing unrest among the troops with regard to the Russian military authority.

In late 1917 the 266th regiment decided, independently of the central government, to end their part in the war by demobilizing the troops. Dr. Rosenblatt agreed to this scheme and, along with Dr. Henryk Zamenhof, was responsible for the diagnoses of "heart ailments" among the majority of the members (probably in good health) of the regiment. She herself was diagnosed with a heart ailment and received an honorable discharge in 1918.

Dr. Rosenblatt was reunited with her husband, Abraham Rosenblatt, in Kiev shortly afterward. After the war, she practiced medicine in Briceni and then Lipcani, both in Bessarabia, Romania (now Moldova). Dr. Rosenblatt and her family immigrated to Toronto in May, 1934. Although she fulfilled the requirements for an M.D. degree at the University of Toronto, she chose to devote the rest of her career to social work. Dr. Rosenblatt died in 1986.
