Jewish Galicia: Vibrant Past Rediscovered
Speaker Andrew Zalewski brings to life the Jewish community of Galicia between the years 1772-1918. His personal genealogical discoveries are intertwined with a larger historical context to provide a story of many contrasts: poverty mixes with opportunities and separateness with acculturation. The talk is based on the expanded research carried out for the speaker's recently published book Galician Portraits: In Search of Jewish Roots.
