JGS Sacramento March 21 meeting "Connections Small and Grand" #general

RobertW252@...
 

Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento

Topic: Connections Small and Grand

Speaker: Liz Igra

When: Sunday, March 21, 2010, 10 a.m.

Where: Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento, CA

Liz Igra is a Holocaust survivor born in Krakow, Poland. After she and
her mother escaped >from the Czorkow ghetto in October 1942, they hid on
false papers, crossed the Carpathian Mountains on foot, spent some time in a
Budapest jail and were released, only to go into hiding when Germany took
complete control of Hungary. Liz and her mother were liberated in 1945 and
returned to Poland to find only one other member of their family.

After time in Poland and France, she and her mother immigrated to
Australia and then came to the U.S. in 1968. Liz has been an elementary and high
school teacher, administrator, workshop presenter, and helped start Shalom
School in Sacramento. In the last twenty years she has been a guest speaker
in many classrooms and teacher conferences. Many teachers confirmed her
personal observations, that even the best seminars do not equip teachers to
meet the challenges of teaching about the Holocaust. So Liz founded the
Central Valley Holocaust Educators' Network.

Liz hopes her story will lead to a better understanding of the Holocaust
and the important lessons to be learned.

The March 21 meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the Albert Einstein
Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento. For more information about the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento, visit www.jgss.org, e-mail the JGSS
at jgs_sacramento@... or leave a message at 916-486-0906 ext. 361.

The program is set for 10 a.m., Sunday, February 21, at the Albert
Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright Street, Sacramento.

All are welcome to attend and to use the JGSS library collection.

Dear Reba,

Here is the Hirlau shtetlink site:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/hirlau/hirlau.htm with much
information on Hirlau and a link to the Hirlau chapter in Pinkas
Hakellot Romania. I don't believe there is any other Yiskor book
for Hirlau.

Does anyone know if there is a Yizkor book or any other material written
(in English) about the Jewish community in the town of Harlau/Hirlau?

Thank you.

I am seeking information about a Kiev Yiddish Theatre that performed in Czernowitz
in 1945. My parents met in the Yiddish Theatre in Czernowitz and married on May 8
1945. Is there a way to find out what theatre companies performed in Czernowitz
at that time? My father said it was the Kiev ... Yiddish Theatre. He was a stage
carpenter and my mother a performer/costumer.

Thank you.
