Family Stories – a film screening and a walk
Each family has a history, its own ways of constructing family narratives, its own identity dilemmas. What if this is the family of the Kocker Rebe, considered one of the most eminent tzaddikim from Poland, the famed Menachem Mendl Morgenstern? A group of students from Poland and Israel decided to give it a go.
17 September (Sunday), 2 PM, we meet at the main hall, free admission
During 10 days of workshops realised as part of the Polish-Israeli Youth Exchange (PIYE) 2017, the students used the genealogical databases available at the POLIN Museum Resource Centre. They studied archival documents and went for a study tour to Kock. We will be able to find out about the results of their work this coming Sunday, 17 September! 2PM-4:30PM, a film screening (ca 30 mins) and a walk (ca 2h)
The event will be held in Polish and English.
ATTENTION! ALL OF YOU INTERESTED IN DISCOVERING FAMILY STORIES! On the same day, at 10.30 PM – 2PM, a special Info Point manned by the students of the Polish-Israeli exchange will be in operation at the Museum. There, you will have a chance to get acquainted with the work at the Resource Centre and with its resources. We encourage all of you to come visit!
