Dear SIG members,

You can see on the updated IAJGS Conference website that we will have time
and space alloted for a SIG meeting (the date/time has not yet been
announced). Also, sometime during the Conference, there will be a special
tour for us of the Jewish Museum's collection of ritual and household
objects >from Danzig, which were "sold" by the community to partly finance
the escape of some of its remaining members (one Danziger who was part of
the Kindertransport believes some of the money raised was used to aid the
Kindertransport children).

If you plan to attend the Conference, or if you might be able to be in New
York for a few hours sometime during Aug 14-Aug 18, in order to attend the
tour, please contact me privately, if you have not already done so.

When the lecture schedule is announced, I will try to mention here and on
our website lectures that might be of special interest to Danzig
researchers. If you know of such a lecture, please post here about it.

Thanks very much,
