This talk explores oral history as a vital path to discovering
Jewish roots. Drawing on his recent book 'Mysterious Places: Journey. Memoir.
Quest' Jeffrey Gorney tells how vibrant family recollections of a Romanian shtetl
inspired him. He will discuss his journeys to Romania: first shortly after
the Romanian Revolution then years later as photographer on assignment in
a vastly changed nation.
Jeffrey will relate what it means to actually visit ancestral lands,
Jewish identity before and after World War II and how Romanian pogroms
helped shape the Holocaust.
*Following Jeffrey's talk, there will be a sale and signing of his book*
