Norah Schneider – The USA and the Holocaust: Finding Family in the Sources

MS. SCHNEIDER will trace changes to immigration in the United States and Germany during the 1930s and 1940s with the Third Reich’s rise to power and the outbreak of the Second World War. Using her own family’s experiences, she will show how the history influences the sources available to trace Jewish genealogy during this time.  Norah recently received a Ph.D. in Humanities from Salve Regina University, where she wrote her doctoral dissertation on the Third Reich and the Holocaust.  She is currently the Collections Manager at Falmouth Museums on the Green and Falmouth Historical Society, is a member of the Falmouth Genealogical Society and also works as a Contract Historian.

Come at 9:30 a.m. for coffee and donuts and to get acquainted with others.  The Brewster Ladies Library is located on Route 6A in Brewster.  Click here for a map.
