is pleased to announce as our guest speaker:
Jo Ann Goldwater

The meeting will be held on

How young Lithuanians are making efforts at reconciliation and working at
preserving Jewish memories in a small shtetl in Lithuania.

Jo Ann will talk about her visit to Zagare (Zhager), a small town in
Lithuania, a stone's throw >from the border with Latvia. In 2015, a Jewish
Culture Festival was organized by two Lithuanians, who were supported and
advised by descendants of Jewish Zagareans in the planning. Jo Ann's
presentation will be illustrated with photos that she took there.
