I received an Email notice with details of the LBI fall program today.
For more about "The World of Aufbau" see the footnote below and also:
"Aufbau"a German-language weekly published in New York and circulated
worldwide was an essential platform for the generation of refugees
from Hitler and the displaced people and concentration camp survivorswho arrived in the United States after the war. The publication served
to link thousands of readers looking for friends and loved ones in
every part of the world. In its pages Aufbau focused on concerns that
strongly impacted this community in the aftermath of World War II."
GerSIG volunteers have extracted birth, marriage, death and other data
from personal ads in the Aufbau. These data are searchable viaa link at the GerSIG website:

"More than 33,000 Holocaust survivors, published in the German-language
newspaper Aufbau, New York, 1944-1946." "Aufbau Survivors Lists" at:
Another event in the fall schedule is "Jews on the Upper East Side"
