This is a videotape of Yale Reisner's presentation to the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Long Island in May 2004. Yale is Founder and Director of the Ronald S. Lauder
Foundation's Genealogy Project at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw,
Poland. Since 1994, he has assisted individuals and families in finding
information on their family roots. The Lauder Foundation, a non-profit Jewish
educational foundation, is active in 16 central and eastern European countries.
Yale has a degree in Eastern European Jewish Studies. Before moving to Poland, he
was involved with the YIVO Institute in New York and worked with the US National
Archives. He has lectured and published numerous articles on the future of
European Jewry in the US, Canada, France, and Poland. His presentation at the Long
Island JGS was one of several on his recent tour of the US. In these
presentations, Yale recounts tales of current Jewish life in Poland, and the
struggle of Poles and Jews alike to come to grips with their shared history.
