GerSig Lunch: Audio-Visual Presentation about the former German Jewish Community in Gliwice (Poland)
Sponsored by GERSIG.
In 2004-2006, Bozena Kubit was curator of the first museum exhibition about the vanished Jewish community of the former Prussian territories. The exhibition held at the Oscar Caro Villa Museum in Gliwice, Upper Silesia, was accompanied by a conference, held in November 2005, and an academic publication in Polish, German and English, which she co-edited, containing a collection of the texts presented at the conference.
This photographic presentation contains images taken from the exhibition and conference, and shares vital information for those researching their families in this former Prussian territory. Of particular note are aspects of Judaica in the local museum and the content and context of records held by the local archives. The presentation will show pictures of the cemetery, local architecture and artifacts, as well as detail archival holdings and the way that these may be used for Jewish genealogy.
