Eva FINKELSTEIN ABREMOVICH #canada

In 1896 my great aunt Eva FINKELSTEIN (later Abremovich) (1877-1953)
was the first Jew to graduate from what became the University of
Manitoba. During her life she touched the lives of many people in the
Wnnipeg area and was active in many social organizations.
This is probably a fruitless request, but if anyone has any knowledge of
her as to why she continued in school when few women did, I would be
grateful to learn about it. She was married to Manuel Abremovich, a
mechanical engineer.
