Speaker: Myrna Nueringer Levy, a member of JGS Toronto, will give an
overview of what Yizkor Books are and where to find them. She will
demonstrate how using the Yizkor book about Borszczow, the
Galician shtetl where her father was born, expanded her understanding of the
life he and his parents had led there. Her illustrations will be taken >from
photographs her grandfather took on a return
visit to Borszczow in 1933. This material is in Myrna's new book, Shattered
Stones, Scattered Seeds: The Story of a Shtetl and a Family Who Lived There.

She has three published books for children as well as a family memoir.
