JGS Cleveland presents "A Story of Rose’s: Creating a Personal Narrative to Remember and Investigate” with Larry Volk. #jgs-iajgs #events #education


Join the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland (jgscleveland.org) for our next Zoom program on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, 7-8:30 pm EST: “A Story of Rose’s:  Creating a Personal Narrative to Remember and Investigate” with Larry Volk.


Program: “A Story of Rose’s” is a biographical narrative about Rosette Alcabes Volk, Larry’s mother and a Holocaust survivor, whose journey brought her from Cuba to France, and later to the United States and Cleveland, Ohio. It is a son’s creative effort to know his mother through significant events that shaped and changed Rose’s identity.  It is an act of remembrance but also investigation.  Through a presentation of his work exploring his mother’s history, Larry will discuss the process of using the photographs and materials that are handed through generations to preserve family history.


Speaker: Larry C. Volk is a Cleveland native and Hawken graduate (class of 1980). He holds an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design and is a Professor of Photography in the School of Visual and Performing Arts at Endicott College in Beverly, MA. He is an artist, educator, and author and lectured nationally on digital imaging, portfolio production and art practice and has served nationally as a photographic reviewer. As a visual artist, Larry works with a range of photographic media in a variety of contexts.  His work has been exhibited nationally and is held in both private and museum collections. He is co-author of No Plastic Sleeves: The Portfolio and Self-Promotion Guide for designers and photographers published by Focal Press in 2021. Larry’s collection of work and personal story can be found at larryvolk.com.
