    Program: How the Paper Brigade Worked to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis

    The Paper Brigade was a group of Jews in the Vilna Ghetto tasked by the
    Nazis to sort through Jewish artifacts for their supposed "Museum of an
    Extinct Race." While left unsupervised, at risk of death, this group hid
    many of these artifacts in the building or smuggled them back into the
    ghetto so that some aspects of Jewish culture would survive. Alix Wall will talk about her grandmother, Rachela Pupko-Krinsky, one of the women members
    of The Paper Brigade.

    Speaker: Alix Wall. Our speaker, Alix Wall, is a freelance writer and a writer/ producer of a documentary-in-progress called The Lonely Child, a
    song written during the Holocaust about her mother and grandmother and how
    it's taken on a life of its own. She also writes extensively about food and about Jewish topics and is the founder of The Illuminoshi: The Not-So-Secret Society of Bay Area Jewish Food Professionals.

    Traveling Library:
