Forum for Dialogue Zoom: Virtual tour of Lodz #poland #lodz #announcements

Mark Halpern

Dear Fellow Genealogists:

Whether you have ancestry from Lodz or not, you don't want to miss this online tour of Jewish Lodz, the second most important Jewish city in Poland after Warsaw. I have been on tours with the Forum for Dialogue and their tours are just first rate even online. 

Join me this Thursday at 10 am Pacific time, 1 pm Eastern time, 6 pm in UK, 8 pm in Israel for a very worthwhile hour.

Mark Halpern

As the travel restrictions still hinder our international friends from visiting Poland in person, I would like to invite you to a virtual tour of another Polish city with a rich Jewish heritage and a special place in the history of Polish Jews. We feel that virtual tours of Warsaw and Krakow we hosted last summer were a great success, therefore let me invite you to our Zoom in on the Forum session devoted to Lodz and its 20th century history.
Our guest, Milena Wicepolska-Goralczyk, Lodz tour guide and a genealogist, will walk us through the rise of "Polish Manchester" as a significant social and industrial center with vibrant Jewish community and its tragedy during the Nazi occupation with the creation of Litzmannstadt Ghetto.
Join us next Thursday, February 25th, at 10 am Pacific, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern, 7 pm Warsaw, 8 pm Tel-Aviv time for a session about Lodz.


Milena Wicepolska-Goralczyk, graduate of English Philology and History, is a tour guide and a Jewish genealogy researcher with more than 10 years of experience. She has cooperated with numerous organizations, such as Taube Center for Jewish Life and Learning, Center of Jewish Research in Lodz, Jewish Historical Institute, University of Lodz, University of Michigan, University of Haifa.
Do not hesitate to share this information with people who might be interested in joining this session!
Looking forward to meeting you on Thursday,

Olga Kaczmarek
Director General
