September, 2019, Meeting: The USA and the Holocaust: Finding Family in the Sources

The first meeting of the 2019 - 2020 season will be held on Tuesday, September 17, at the Brewster Ladies Library.

Our speaker, Norah Schneider, will trace changes to immigration in the United States and Germany during the 1930s and 1940s with the Third Reich's rise to power and the outbreak of the Second World War. Using her own family's experiences, she will show how the history influenced the sources available to trace Jewish genealogy during this time.

Norah recently received a Ph.D. from Salve Regina University, where she wrote her doctoral dissertation on the Third Reich and the Holocaust. A member of Falmouth Genealogical Society, she is currently the collections manager at Falmouth Museums on the Green and Falmouth Historical Society. In addition, she is also a contract historian. 

Our meeting will take place in the auditorium of the Brewster Ladies Library, Rte 6A, Brewster. As in the past, the public is always welcome to join us for our monthly meetings. Members, and guests, are invited to arrive at 9:30 AM, for socializing and refreshments. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 10 AM. We hope to see you there!
