opportunity to relax, socialize with fellow Galitzianers, and hear our
luncheon speaker, Dr. Steven Turner.
In his talk -- "Traveling Through the Heart of Galicia: A Galitzianer's
Journey" -- Steve will describe his travels in Galicia before and after
last year's IAJGS conference in Warsaw. He started his journey in
Western Galicia and after the conference, he led a group of
descendants >from Nadworna through Eastern Galicia. The group spent
an unforgettable Shabbat with Rabbi Moyshe Kolesnik and his
congregation in Ivano-Frankivsk (formerly Stanislawow) before heading
to Nadworna (now Nadvirna), where a monument to the victims of the
Shoah was dedicated. Steve finished his trip with a stay in Lviv and a
side trip to Rohatyn.
