Reconstructing Memories, Rebuilding the Community of Our Ancestors Shtetl in Poland
by Anita Greenbaum-Brush
Tuesday April 27th at 7:00pm
Gąbin, a small town on the central plains of Poland, once had a thriving Jewish community. It was destroyed during WWII, when fewer than 10 percent of the Jewish population survived. No Jews live in Gąbin today. But survivors and descendants have kept memories alive, by preserving stories, images and artifacts. This talk will look at prewar and wartime life in Gąbin, and how descendants have worked to preserve and commemorate what once existed, and to reach out to form new relationships with institutions in Poland and today’s Gąbiners.
