JGSLA-Aug. 14th Meeting-Drohobycz Fim/Conference Highlights #general

Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles - Program for Sunday, August 14th

Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: University Synagogue, Klein Hall, 11960 Sunset Blvd., Los
Angeles

Screening: "I Remember Jewish Drohobycz'

In the short video, JGSLA founding member and rabbinical scholar, David
Einsiedler, born in Drohobycz in 1919, recounts the heart and soul of shtetl
life between the two World Wars. Through personal reminiscences, both
humorous and heart-wrenching, he leads us through the streets and into the
homes and schools of this Galician town. David describes moving to Lvov,
then to the university in Pisa, Italy and then on to America in the late
1930s.

We hope to have Mr. Einsiedler in attendance to answer questions after the
screening about the vanished world of Eastern European Jewish life portrayed
in this film.
