Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting

Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia Meeting Details

Do you have documents, photographs, or family heirlooms stashed away in shoe boxes in the attic, basement, or closet? Then there is no time like the present to organize and preserve those items for future generations to learn their family heritage. Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia as our featured speaker, Jeremy Katz, Archives Director at the Breman Museum, conducts a workshop on preserving your family history. Participants are encouraged to bring items from the family collections they wish to be examined for preservation.

Participants are also encouraged to stay after the program for the opening of the Curating Your Family Story exhibition featuring art projects completed by Shearith Israel students on their family heritage.

Free for Members. Non-Members, participation in this event is included in the cost of general museum admission.

    Bearing Witness: Eugen Schoenfeld (Czechoslovakia)

    Eugen survived the Holocaust in the notorious camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Dachau. Yet after the war, when given the chance to kill one of the most brutal guards, he refused. What powers led Eugen to give up hostility to his enemies? The former Chair of the Department of Sociology at Georgia State University, Eugen will reflect on this question and other aspects of rebuilding life from the brink of destruction.
