Program Join us for a video of interest for those researching Eastern Europe.
"Echoes That Remain" produced by Arnold Schwartzman and Rabbi Hier,
Simon Wiesenthal Center.

A poignant, nostalgic study of the Jewish shtetl life before the
Holocaust. This video combines hundreds of rare archival photos and
previously unseen film footage with live action sequences shot on
location at the sites of former Jewish communities in Czechoslovakia,
Hungary, Poland and Romania. Dramatizes the folk stories, parables and
anecdotes and brings tears and laughter to the viewer. Covers the
traditions: Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, etc., and the poverty and hardships
and pogroms, the humor, laughter and traditional family life that
prevailed in the shtetl in the "Jewish Old Worlds."

There is a $3 fee for non-members; this fee will be waived for those
choosing to join at the meeting
