Her presentation, which will begin at 2 p.m. CDT, will be preceded at 1 p.m. by a genealogy question-and-answer discussion time.



This event is free and open to the public; however, Zoom will limit attendance to 100. To join the live streaming session, at the meeting time go to https://tinyurl.com/y3svjpcq. This webinar will be recorded so that JGSI’s paid members who are unable to view it live will be able to view the recording later.

The daughter of two Holocaust survivors, Deborah Long reviews in this presentation the best (as well as some of the obscure) resources and methods for determining the fate of those involved in the Holocaust, including survivors and victims. She will use examples from her own research to demonstrate the documents and artifacts she discovered.
