The film Denial - Did the Holocaust Occur #galicia

Tony Hausner
 

This is a one time posting to make sure everyone knows about this most
important film.

See http://www.bleeckerstreetmedia.com/denial for more information
and the trailer. Trailer can be seen at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYcx43AmAyY

"The whole world knows that the Holocaust occurred. Now she needs to
prove it."

This film officially opens in NYC and LA on 9/30. In 10 other cities on
10/7 and more cities on 10/14. The schedule is at the Bleeker Street site
above.

Given that Holocaust denial is such a major part of history, I felt it
important that everyone know. I apologize if others have already posted.

I have scheduled a preview in Bethesda, MD on 10/6 and have sold out
one theater of 240 persons. We are looking into whether we will set up
arrangements for another theater.

I have lots more info about the film, relevant literature, interviews, film
reviews etc. if interested.

JGS of Maryland Sept 25 program--NEW LOCATION #general

Susan Steeble
 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland
Speaker: Joyce Dreyfuss
Title: "How to Protect and Store Old Documents, Books, and Photographs"
Date and Time: Sunday, September 25, 2016, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd
Pikesville, MD

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION!

Please join us on Sunday, September 25, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. at the
Pikesville Library's meeting room, for our next program, "How to
Protect and Store Old Documents, Books, and Photographs," presented by
Joyce Dreyfuss.

In this program, Joyce Dreyfuss, a professional Book and Paper
Conservator, will discuss: When did paper ingredients change from
linen and papyrus to wood pulp? Why does acid matter? How should rare
materials be stored? What kind of environment do we need? and How
should we handle a rare or delicate object? She will also provide a
hands-on demonstration.

Joyce Dreyfuss is currently a freelance Book and Paper Conservator to
both museums and private clients. The field comprises hands-on
craftsmanship with intellectual rigor and education. In 1978-1979, she
apprenticed with Mr. Johannes Hyltoft of Denmark at the Book
Conservation Lab for The Smithsonian Institution rare book libraries.
Many people are not aware that The Smithsonian has several small rare
book libraries with priceless collections of everything >from Leonardo
DaVinci's anatomical drawings to rare stamps >from the Soviet Union to
Sigmund Freud's collected letters. In 1980-1981, she was invited to
work on Holocaust art work >from the concentration camps at Yad Vashem
Museum in Israel. She then returned to The Smithsonian Institution,
where she worked under Mr. Hyltoft until 1987. Subsequently, she moved
to Baltimore and began to freelance.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.

A story to inspire researchers #poland

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi All

My talk, A Tragic Romance and Its Consequences, presented at last
year's IAJGS conference in Jerusalem, has now been published in
Avotaynu Online

http://www.avotaynuonline.com/2016/08/from-one-photograph-
to-journeys-of-research-and-discovery/

The story starts in Orla, near Bialystok, Poland and my multi faceted
research took me to many countries.

I trust that it will inspire those interested in family research.

It begins:

All I ever knew was that I am named after my great-uncle Moshe. Moshe
died in a motor accident, six weeks before his planned wedding. The date
of his death is unknown, but it was sometime between the late 1920s and
early 30s. That was the sum total of my knowledge of Moshe until a
photograph given to me in 2011 changed everything.

Regards

Re: Lukow birth record from 1873 #poland

Mark Halpern
 

When JRI-Poland determines that digitized Jewish records for a town are
online, a link to the folder on the Polish Archive website is added to
the search results table for that town. The results table for Lukow
does not have such a link.

Researchers could search the Polish State Archive digital image website
http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/ themselves by Archive. >from the
JRI-Poland "your town" index determine the Regional Archive holding the
records and the Fond number.

Navigate to the Regional Archive "Resource" page and find fond number.
The identifying numbers in the left hand column show Archive number then
Fond number.

There is also a Guide to using this Polish State Archive website at
http://jri-poland.org/help/NDA_Guide.pdf.

If there are no images available online, researchers have two choices :
1) wait until the Jewish records are digitized and online or 2) order a
scan directly >from the Regional Archive.

All Regional Archives are digitizing and placing online all their
holdings of vital records. Each Regional Archive moves at its own pace.
JRI-Poland does not know when Jewish record images will be online.

For those who would rather not wait until images are online, the webpage
http://jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm is out of date and is now being
revised, but the basic procedure for ordering records >from the Archive
has not changed.

For Lukow Jewish records, you should contact the Siedlce Archive at
archiw@siedlce.ap.gov.pl to order a scan of that record using the
information >from the JRI-Poland index entry.
