Join the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) for our upcoming free webinar “How a Nice Jewish Boy who Started Life
in Cheder Ended Up Being a Doctor to the Last Tsar” by Dr. Harold Rhode on December 11, 2022, 7 pm Israel Time, 12 pm ET.
How did a Jewish boy who started his life in "Cheder" end up by a series of fascinating coincidences as a doctor to the
last Tsar and his entourage? We will follow the escapes and adventures of him and his family. They totally threw themselves
into the elite Russian society and did everything they could to be accepted. They assimilated and lived very well at first.
But all in vain as a result of World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, the Holocaust, etc.
Besides our genealogical journey, we will learn where to find the non-vital records stored in the Tsarist and early Soviet
periods, the 1930s in Nazi Germany, and Lodz Nazi Ghetto archives.(The doctor was a brother to a great-great-grandmother of mine.)
