"...Remembering the Kindertransports"
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will meet at 2:00 PM Sunday
December 14, 2003 at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services, 14041 Icot Blvd.,
Clearwater, Florida. The topic for the meeting will be a video "My Knees
Were Jumping, Remembering the Kindertransports". The film is narrated by
Joanne Woodward. With tremendous courage, a group of Jews and Quakers saved
the lives of thousands of children >from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia
and Poland between December 1938 and August 1939. Most of the children
never saw their parents again. Filmmaker Melissa Hacker reveals the
dramatic story of her Vienna born mother, the Academy Award nominated
costume designer, Ruth Morley.
*Back to by popular demand*: Beginning at 1:30 PM (30 minutes prior to the
video program) the main program will be preceded by a beginner's workshop.
Following the video, there will be questions and answers for individuals
doing research, and our new library materials will be available for review
The Jewish Genealogical Society's library and research resources, including
both printed materials and computer access, along with guided assistance
and information exchange >from experienced researchers will be available to
participants at the meeting. Our library is growing and is quickly becoming
one of the most important reasons to come to the meetings. Many of the
items in the library are impossible to find in the local libraries, and if
they are reference only elsewhere, they can not be gotten through
