JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

Announcements:

Genealogy is about context, as well as facts. The 22nd IAJGS International
Conference is pleased to present a range of artistic displays, entertainment
and films to delight the soul, as well as your mind. Full details of these
Programmes can be found on the Conference Programme web page at
http://www.jgstoronto2002.ca/Programme.html.

1. During the Conference you will find a range of galleries with arts and
exhibits. In one gallery you will find a limited selection >from the
original major photographic exhibition “And I Still See Their Faces: Images
of Polish Jews”. - an absorbing look at the vibrant Jewish family and
community life and diverse culture that existed in Poland in the years
before 1939. The accompanying volume will be on sale.

2. “Jewish Heritage in Poland” is selection of sixteen photographs, in
colour and black and white, of Jewish heritage sites in Poland taken by Alex
Oldfield while on a two-week Elderhostel tour in August 2001. The focus is
on Judaica in Warsaw, Tykocin, Bialystok, Lodz, and Kazimierz (Cracow), as
well as Treblinka, Majdanek and Auschwitz. Most of these photographs will be
featured in the slide show presentation: Jewish Heritage in Poland (see
Monday’s schedule).

3. “Tracing the Jewish Past Through Postal History” is a photographic
exhibition that contains samples >from the collection of Nigel Grizzard and
travels through places as diverse as Kirgistan, England, the Isle of Man,
Palestine, Egypt, Slovakia, Hungary and Argentina.

Three original art exhibitions will be on display at the Conference and the
artists will be available for an informal talk and questions.

a. Mayer Kirshenblatt’s “Childhood Memories >from Opatow, Poland” is his
reflection of stories he told his three daughters about growing up in Poland
before the Holocaust.

b. >from Montreal, artist Susan Shulman’s “In Our Memories Forever”, the
hypothetical has become real. Through the existence of a family archive of
letters written by her young grandparents between 1898-1900, the painter has
been afforded a glimpse into the lives of her ancestors and their flight
from Russia and eventual immigration to Canada.
c. Family Fabrics: An Exhibit by the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Textiles
of Toronto, is an exhibit of original textile pieces incorporating
genealogical research and family history. Some pieces have been constructed
using heirloom fabrics.

School, a Jewish Day School where the arts play a major role, and the work

e. In conjunction with the Toronto Jewish Film Festival, the second
largest Jewish film festival in North America, and one of the largest Jewish
film festivals in the world, the Conference will be presenting the Jewish
Genealogical Film Festival. Films of interest to Jewish genealogists will be
featured Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Two of the films are expected to be
presented by respective film makers, one by a person portrayed in the film,
others by persons knowledgeable in the topics.

Tuesday Cinema 1: “The Jews of Poland”, & “The Secret”

Wednesday Cinema 1:“Wierzbnik: Impressions of a Town that Was” &

she had been born in 1878 in Skala.

authorities in the Eastern European countries and Russia in
order to get an

some record of
birth would have been needed.
I know that when my father came here in 1927 he had to answer
