    Jewish Genealogical Society NY Meeting Sunday, September 15 at 2 PM
    at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St.

    Speaker: Daniel Walkowitz
    Program: "Searching for Paterson Roots Remembered and Forgotten in Heritage Tourism

    The extended Walkowitz family arrived in Paterson NJ from Lodz, Poland, as early as
    1910. They worked in textile mills, department stores and shops in the city while
    taking an active role in Yiddish theater, the Paterson Folk Chorus, and labor politics. Our speaker will recount the genealogical and archival research that allowed him to uncover the stories of this past in the United States and in Eastern
    and Central Europe, where he sought to see and hear what of these roots appear in
    walking tours, Jewish museums and memorial sites. Illustrated with slides, the lecture will also illustrate the disappointments and surprises that frame the robust and changing terrain of Jewish Heritage tourism today.

    Daniel Walkowitz, Emeritus Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and Professor
    of History at New York University, has specialized in labor history, urban history
    and public history. In nearly a dozen books, many articles and four films for public television he has worked to bring America's past to both academic and broad
    public audiences.

    Free for JGSNY Members; guests welcome, $5 at the door.
