This summer's 36th conference of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies in Seattle will feature a performance of the
highly acclaimed play >from Door to Door. The heart-warming, bittersweet
comedy will be staged by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company, a local
theater group devoted to Jewish-themed plays.

Written by award-winning playwright James Sherman and directed by SJTC
artistic director Art Feinglass, >from Door to Door follows the lives of
three generations of a family of Jewish women, >from impoverished
immigrant to successful American. The performance will take place on
the evening of August 9 in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel in
downtown Seattle, where the conference will run >from August 7 to 12.

As director Art Feinglass notes, "The play takes its title >from the
Hebrew song L'dor V'dor, '>from generation to generation.' It examines
what it means to grow up Jewish and to love those closest to, and most
like, ourselves." An audience discussion with the director and cast will
follow the performance.

During the conference, SJTC will also present Jewish History Live in
which actors will portray Jewish immigrants who came to Seattle from
areas as disparate as Turkey, Rhodes, and Russia in the early 1900s, and
Germany and Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. They will engage conference
attendees in conversation, tell their personal stories and share their
dreams as new immigrants to America.

This summer's IAJGS conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival
put together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights include the opening night keynote address by
Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington Sephardic Studies

Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami Event - Sunday May 22 2016 #general

Yoram Millman <ymillman.jgs@...>
 

Please join JGS of Greater Miami next event Sunday May 22 2016

Location : Greater Miami Jewish Federation

4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami Florida

Time : 11.00 am

Topic: Tracing a child after the Holocaust
Speaker: : Dr. Peter Tarjan :

Peter Tarjan will present his extensive search for a Jewish child whose tracks
had disappeared in Budapest in 1945.

This presentation is part of a project of seeking records of the plight of
children in Hungary and find those who may have survived but their tracks also
disappeared.

The speaker will describe his search for Miklos Reisman in cooperation with
Kathy Altman, first cousin of Miklos.

Miklos was the son of Jeno Reisman, the brother of Kathy's mother, and his
mother's maiden name was Ilona Stern. Miklos was born in Uzhgorod,
Czechoslovakia in 1937. The area was annexed to Hungary in 1938 and it is today
in Ukraine.

Jeno was drafted into the forced labor service for Jewish men and disappeared
on the Eastern Front. Ilona moved to Budapest in 1944. She was probably forced
into the infamous Eichmann March in November, 1944.

Kathy Altman began to search for Miklos in the 1990s. Ilona did survive and
returned to Budapest, but her tracks also disappeared. Ilona's brother, Martin
Stern, was living in Israel after the war.

Although the search has been inconclusive, it has produced numerous documents
which may be exploited toward establishing the identities and fates of many of
the children whose fate has not been recorded. There were probably thousands of
Jewish children who were taken to Israel, where many had changed their names
and some were too young to remember their lives during the war.

This presentation is made possible with the help of The Memorial Museum of
Hungarian Speaking Jewry in Safed, Israel

Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado "Stephen P. Morse One-Step Webpages: An in-depth Discussion" with Barry Halpern Sunday May 22 #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

Sunday, May 22 , 2016
"Stephen P. Morse One-Step Webpages: An in-depth Discussion" with Barry Halpern
Time: 10:00 am until noon
Location: JCC (Denver) at 350 South Dahlia Street
This session is free and open to the public!

Many of our members may recall that Steve Morse was the featured speaker for our
annual seminar program several years ago. While Steve is not yet returning to
visit the JGSCO, this is your opportunity to catch up on the world of the One
Step Webpages.

Stephen P. Morse is known to many genealogists as the creator of the "One-Step"
website. Many of us refer to it as the "Steve Morse website". However it's
referred to, it has become an indispensable tool for genealogists doing online
research. Steve has been building the website for more than ten years, so if you
haven't visited it lately, you may be missing something!

Barry Halpern will review the various features of the website, and provide hands
on examples and guidance in how to get the most of your research time.

About the Speaker
Barry has been researching his family history on and off for more than 15 years,
though much more intensely during the past several years since he retired >from
a 35 year career in the insurance business. Barry and family have had a long-time
interest in Jewish communities in Asia, having lived and worked there for about
20 years. Now that Barry is no longer a business professional, he has become an
amateur at several pursuits: genealogy, photography, astronomy and tennis, in
addition to now being known as an amateur book author. Barry has served on
various positions for the JGSCO, and is currently the newsletter editor. He is
also on the Board of LitvakSIG, serving as Secretary, and is a member of the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston.

Fleeing Nazis from Czechoslovakia to Ecuador: NYC Film Screening #latinamerica

Robert J. Friedman <rjfriedman@...>
 

"And there was Fire in the Center of the Earth," directed by Bernhard
Hetzenauer, tells the story of Vera Kohn, who in 1939 fled Nazi
persecution in Czechoslovakia to find refuge with her family in
Ecuador. After a career as a leading actress in Quito, she was a
practicing psychologist for 45 years and a pioneer and teacher of Zen
meditation in her adopted country.=20

In this film, the director contrasts and merges Vera=92s story with his
personal questions of collective guilt and individual responsibility
as he attempts to come to terms with his own family legacy: his
Austrian grandfather was a member of the SS.

The film will be shown on Sunday, June 5. For more information, see

As director Art Feinglass notes, "The play takes its title >from the
Hebrew song L'dor V'dor, '>from generation to generation.' It examines
what it means to grow up Jewish and to love those closest to, and most
like, ourselves." An audience discussion with the director and cast will
follow the performance.

During the conference, SJTC will also present Jewish History Live in
which actors will portray Jewish immigrants who came to Seattle from
areas as disparate as Turkey, Rhodes, and Russia in the early 1900s, and
Germany and Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. They will engage conference
attendees in conversation, tell their personal stories and share their
dreams as new immigrants to America.

This summer's IAJGS conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival
put together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights include the opening night keynote address by
Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington Sephardic Studies
Program, and a resource room accessing a vast array of databases. And,
as at previous conferences, remote streaming of selected programs will
be available through LIVE!
