Raising Atlantis: Restoring Jewish Memory in Poland

Program begins at 11:30 a.m. - Admission: $7.00 at the door
Reception and Discussion to Follow

Poland's Jews, for centuries the world's largest Jewish community, constituted
a social and cultural force within Poland and beyond, as influential as the
great society of Atlantis. That civilization, too, was swept away in the
cataclysm of the Holocaust. Those losses are still acutely felt in Poland.

Yale is traveling >from Warsaw to describe some of the ways in which Jewish
memory is being sought out and, to some degree, restored in Poland today. He
will speak of the work of the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation, as well as of a
growing network of institutions, initiatives and individuals that are gradually
discovering, protecting and restoring many Jewish elements to Poland's
historical and cultural landscape

Yale J. Reisner founded the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation Genealogy Project at
the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland in 1994. The Lauder Foundation is a
non-profit Jewish educational foundation active in 16 Central & East European
countries.

Mr. Reisner holds degrees in East Central European Studies >from Columbia
College and the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy and has studied at Hebrew
University, the Jewish Theological Seminary, Villanova University, the YIVO
Institute and the U.S. National Archives. He has lectured and published
articles in the USA, Canada, France and Poland.
