Hersh defended our mother Katie Harper, charged with 1st degree murder, of her husband, and our John Bruce Down. The murder took place in 1959, in Winnipeg. The trial brought wittiness from across Canada. It had high media coverage, set Canadian presedence. When Hersh was present, we all felt safe. He had a great sense of humour, and we were honoured it have had him represent our mother. He was kind and compassionate, and I am certainly sorry for your tragic loss. Please know that my prayers are with his hr and his loved ones....in sadness...Daphne Chow

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Hersh Wolch. In 2001, Mr. Wolch represented me in my appeal of a murder conviction in Saskatchewan and since that time has been a continual source of guidance for me in my legal battle. Mr. Wolch was a brilliant lawyer and an outstanding individual. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

To the Martin and Wolch families,
We consider Hersh to be a hero of the Canadian Landscape but more than that, an absolutely wonderful and delightful person.
Please know that whatever help our sympathy can bring is yours in abundance.

It is almost in a state of complete disbelief that I write to you today. Having just shared some time with Hersh at the conference in Vancouver, where he looked so happy and robust. It is difficult to accept that he is no longer with us to be the champion for so many. Such a huge loss at so many levels.
Please know that both Felix and I extend our sincere sympathies to the entire family.

Our deepest condolences to the family, during this difficult time.Hersh was a very special person and very kind man. He also was an Extremely Great Lawyer. We have known him for 27 years and he was like a father to us as he was doing our son's case. He has given us lots of encouragement and got us through a lot of tough times. When we heard the news of him passing we were in shock and also had a difficult time. We will really miss him as a Lawyer and a good friend. Again we our very sorry for your loss

I just heard about Hersh. I am so saddened by your loss and ours. He was a true champion for the wrongly convicted and a lovely man on top of it. I was privileged to spend time with you and Hersh at the Federation programs. We had fun didn't we? Take care. Mark
