Biographical Sketch: Marketa Newman was born in

and Eva. She and her family were taken to the
"model concentration camp", Terezin, in 1942.

children who survived, out of 15,000 children who passed
through Terezin. The family emigrated to Canada in 1949,
first staying in Toronto, and settled in Saskatoon in
September 1949. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree
from the University of Saskatchewan in 1962; and a
Bachelor of Library Science degree from the University
of Toronto in 1964. From 1964 until her retirement in
1985 she worked for the University of Saskatchewan
Library in the cataloguing, acquisitions, and collection
development departments. She was the author of
Biographical Dictionary of Saskatchewan Artists -

of Saskatchewan Artists - Men Artists
. In 1997,
largely in recognition of the dictionaries, she
received an honorary degree from University of
Saskatchewan. She died on 6 November 2000.
