Topic: "Rescuing the Evidence: Three minutes in Poland"
Guest Speaker: Glenn Kurtz author of "Three Minutes in Poland, Discovering
a Lost World in a 1938 Family Film." More than 70 years later these few
minutes of home movie footage would become a memorial to a entire community
annihilated in the Holocaust. Glenn will describe his two year effort to
identify the people in the film's haunting image.
The search took him across the United States, to Canada, England, Poland,
Israel and an abandoned Luftwaffe airfield.
