JGS Event – Poland Special Interest Group

May 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

POLAND SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP (SIG) MEETING

WITH DAVID PRICE

THURSDAY, 20 MAY AT 7:30 p.m.

David Price writes:

Suppose from age 15 you survived five years in a half dozen concentration camps and you came out thinking all your family was murdered. You have trouble even remembering what your parents looked like.  If only you had a photo…

Chaim Prajs died a few years ago at age 90, never having found a living relative or even a photo. Two years after he died, his son, Chaim, e-mailed Judy Golan, who he found on JewishGen to be another PRAJS of Kielce, Poland. Judy said there were two unrelated PRAJS families from Kielce. She did not recognize Chaim’s family. By chance, Judy was a JRI-Poland volunteer working on a Kielce project with the other PRAJS of Kielce, namely me, David Price. She passed along Chaim’s e-mail to me. I recognized every name and I had photos!

Note: the JGS SIGs are restricted to members only.  This meeting will be conducted through Zoom.  An email with a link will be available in the coming days.
