JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen October 22nd Meeting of JGSNY: "The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million" #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund

The Jewish Genealogical Society will present "The Lost: A Search for Six of
Six Million" on Sunday, October 22, 2006, at 2:00 PM. The guest speaker is
Daniel Mendelsohn, an award-winning writer, critic, humanities scholar and
the author of "The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million" (HarperCollins,
September 2006). The program will be held at the Center for Jewish History,
15 West 16th Street, Manhattan (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues). Subway: 1,
2, and 3 to 18th Street; 4, 5, 6, L, N, R to Union Square; F, V, L to 14th
Street & Sixth Avenue. There is a $5 admission charge for non-members.

Daniel Mendelsohn returned to his family's ancestral shtetl of Bolechow,
Ukraine, to learn the truth about a branch of his family that vanished in
the Holocaust -- an investigation into the meaning of memory, family and
history. The focus of his talk will be the "writer's angle" in genealogical
research and the emotions encountered when one moves between past and
present in an effort to solve a long-standing family mystery.
