Merle Kastner <merlebk18@...>
The JGS of Montreal, in association with the
Jewish Public Library, presents:
Steven Lapidus, Ph.D.,
"The Life and Death of a Ukrainian Shtetl"
The meeting will be held on
Monday, April 09, 2018, at 7:30 pm
While little documentation exists for many of the small shtetlach of eastern
Europe, there were two personal memoirs written about life in my
grandfather's shtetl in the prewar and inter-bellum periods.
The authors were first cousins and one of them was my grandfather.
Both had fled Ukraine in the mid-1920s and settled in Montreal.
This talk will illuminate these memoirs and their lives before the destruction
of its Jewish community.
The meeting will take place at the Gelber Conference Centre
5151 Cote Ste-Catherine/1 Carre Cummings
