Speaker: Deborah Long, Author and Educator

Topic: Out of the Whirlwind: Finding Your Family Lost in the Holocaust


Deborah Long has been researching her family’s Holocaust history and looking for surviving family members for more than 50 years.

Her research in 2009 led to the discovery of surviving cousins in Sweden, Hungary, Canada, and most recently in Israel. Deborah is a

professional educator, though typically her audiences are licensed professionals. She has written more than 20 books, including a memoir

about growing up as a child of survivors titled “First Hitler, Then Your Father, and Now You.” She is the founder of the Triangle JGS in

Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The daughter of two Holocaust survivors, Deborah Long reviews the best (as well as some of the obscure) resources and methods for

determining the fate of those involved in the Holocaust, including survivors and victims. Deborah will use examples from her own research 

to demonstrate the documents and artifacts she discovered.


Mentors will also be available from 1:00 PM until the start of the meeting to help with your research efforts.
