Program: How the Paper Brigade Worked to Save Jewish Treasures >from the Nazis

The Paper Brigade was a group of Jews in the Vilna Ghetto tasked by the
Nazis to sort through Jewish artifacts for their supposed "Museum of an
Extinct Race." While left unsupervised, at risk of death, this group hid
many of these artifacts in the building or smuggled them back into the
ghetto so that some aspects of Jewish culture would survive. Alix Wall will
talk about her grandmother, Rachela Pupko-Krinsky, one of the women members
of The Paper Brigade.

Speaker: Alix Wall. Our speaker, Alix Wall, is a freelance writer and a
writer/ producer of a documentary-in-progress called The Lonely Child, a
song written during the Holocaust about her mother and grandmother and how
it's taken on a life of its own. She also writes extensively about food and
about Jewish topics and is the founder of The Illuminoshi: The Not-So-Secret
Society of Bay Area Jewish Food Professionals.

Traveling Library:

included are listed on our website http://www.jgscv.org/ under library and

Phyllis Kramer, z'l #romania

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

With tremendous pain and sadness, I regret to inform you that Phyllis
Kramer, our beloved Director of Education, has passed away.

Not many were aware of this, but Phyllis was diagnosed with an
extremely aggressive illness shortly before the Cleveland conference.
Phyllis shared the news with me, but asked that I not publicize it.

Over the past 6 weeks, Phyllis did a lot of work, together with Nancy
Holden, to perpetuate our educational offerings, and more information
will be shared in the coming days. But for now, we join together in
great sadness and mourning for someone who dedicated so much of
herself to the broader Jewish genealogical community.

I last spoke to Phyllis a few days ago, and last saw her in person a
couple of weeks ago. She was an extremely loyal friend, mentor and
role model to me personally, and I know that she will be deeply,
deeply missed by all of us.

More information will be shared, including what we can do to honor
Phyllis's memory, in the days ahead.

With tears.
