In order to escape the crush of the Soviet invasion, in 1944 his family undertook a perilous journey in a small boat in order to flee to Sweden. From there, the family immigrated to Canada in 1951 and settled in Montréal. After his training Enn practised general and vascular surgery at the Montreal General and Queen Mary Veterans hospitals. In 1980 he joined Shouldice Hospital in Thornhill, Ont., as senior staff surgeon, a post he held until his retirement in 2000.”
