JGSI 2012 Sunday MEETINGS:
- Sunday, November 4th
JGSI monthly meeting at Temple Beth Israel 12:30: Library, genealogical questions, and Internet help.
Ellen Cassedy, author, translator, and playwright will speak about her newest book, "We are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust." Cassedy, a former columnist for the "Philadelphia Daily News" and the author of two books for working women, has been exploring the world of the Lithuanian Holocaust for ten years. Her latest book began as a personal journey to connect with her Jewish forebears, but soon expanded into a larger quest, into how people in Lithuania -- Jews and non-Jews -- are engaging with theirNazi and Soviet pasts to move forward into the future.
