The Unvanquished First Response: Postwar Cinema & the Holocaust Film Series


Remarkably, The Unvanquished (1945), fourth in our series of post-World War II films, was the first Soviet film portraying the mass murder of Jews and one of the first-ever Holocaust films. Rare scenes of mass executions were filmed on location in Babi Yar, a symbol of the Holocaust in the Soviet Union. A discussion will follow the screening with Anna Shternshis, University of Toronto and Olga Gershenson, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. 

First Response: Postwar Cinema and the Holocaust Film Series has been supported by a generous grant from The David Berg Foundation.

Tuesday, December 1, 6:30 pm
JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) and
the Importance of Jewish Burial Records
| Family History Today 2015 Lecture


Jewish headstone inscriptions and burial records can provide crucial information to genealogists. Hebrew name inscriptions, based on patronymics, can link together two generations of Hebrew names unlike any other source document. This can be especially helpful when trying to link first-generation American ancestors to their European families. Through photographic examples and case studies, this lecture will show how the information and symbols found on stones can help create your family tree. Speaker:  Nolan Altman, Vice President for Data Acquisition and Coordinator of the Online Worldwide Burial Registry project for Jewish Gen.
