Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain
Monday, 15th December 2008 , 2.00pm - 4.00pm
Holocaust Research: Integrating resources from the International Tracing Service and other archives, e.g. Central Zionist Archives
and Yad Vashem
We have been extremely fortunate in attracting Dr Rose Lerer Cohen to Manchester to speak to us on the Holocaust Records held at Bad Arolsen (home of the International Tracing Service of the Red Cross). The title and theme of her talk is as above. Dr Cohen will only be in the UK for a few days and apart from speaking in London, this is the only opportunity people will have to benefit from her knowledge and experience. She has taken a group of researchers to Bad Arolsen to see for herself exactly what is held there amongst the 50 million documents covering the many millions of people who perished in the Holocaust.
There will be a big demand for places at this talk, so please contact the museum as soon as possible if you would like to attend. There will be a nominal charge of £3 per person.
