Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Join My Virtual Trip to Ukraine #ukraine

Ellen Shindelman Kowitt

My first trip to Ukraine, the birthplace of my paternal grandfather, was
over 20 years ago. I have written about and lectured to genealogists many
times about my travel there in 1997 with my family, and then again in 1999
as a JewishGen Shtetlshlepper Group Leader.

As owner of the KehilaLinks website about Lyubar, I have shared my
experiences as well as information about retrieving documents and about the
history of the Jews of Lyubar, Ukraine where my KARGER and SHINDELMAN family
lived for at least 150 years.

In an extraordinary turn of events, material and photos >from the Lyubar
website < > is being used by a
German-government funded group called "The Protecting Memory Project" to
erect a memorial on two mass gravesites in Lyubar where relatives were
murdered in 1941. I have been invited to speak at the Opening Ceremony in
Lyubar, Ukraine on June 20, 2019.

If interested, you are invited to follow my travel journal on Tripcast which
will contain photos, videos, and notes about my trip back to 'Ukraine in
2019' by signing up at < >
