“Lodz, Poland: Its Jewish History and Genealogical Resources”
Lodz, located in central Poland, held one of the largest Jewish communities in Europe, second only to Warsaw. Come hear about the early history of Lodz and the influx of the Jews to this city and eventual emigration abroad. Learn about the Lodz Ghetto and its 90,000 inhabitants who were forced there from places all over Europe. Methods of doing genealogical research from many resources will be presented.
A board member of JRI-Poland, Roni is JRI’s Archive Coordinator for Lodz, co-founder and coordinator of LARG (the Lodz Area Research Group), and coordinator of JewishGen’s KehilaLinks page for Lodz. She is also active in efforts to remember the Jewish communities of Belchatow and Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland, and Paterson, NJ. Roni was a consultant for Angel of Ahlem, a documentary about a World War II liberator, and she currently serves as the president of JGS Inc. (NY).
