JewishGen Webinar - July 1st #education #JewishGenUpdates

Nancy Siegel

We invite you to attend another free presentation in our series of JewishGen Talks webinars, with our speaker, Karen S. Franklin.

Rescue and Resettlement:

Researching Refugees from Nazi Europe

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

3:00 pm Eastern Time - New York (19:00 UTC)

Presented in Partnership with the JGS of New York and Leo Baeck Institute

Researchers may face challenges in documenting relatives who were refugees from Europe during World War II. Not all those who fled followed well-worn routes, so identifying and tracking them involves the kind of creative sleuthing important for all historical research. 

Exit routes and countries of refuge covered in this presentation include British Guiana, the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Morocco and Egypt among others. 

Our speaker, Karen S. Franklin, is the Director of Family Research at the Leo Baeck Institute; past co-chair of JewishGen's Board of Governors; past president of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award; and past president of the Council of American Jewish Museums.

Karen has organized this session around case studies in which unusual as well as tried and true sources will be discussed.
