Speaker: Mark Halpern

Topic: The Trip of a Lifetime: Refugees Find Safe Haven via Japan In the summer of 1940, diplomat Chiune Sugihara–known as “the Japanese Schindler”–issued transit visits that enabled over 6,000 Jews to escape war-torn Europe. Mark Halpern will describe one Polish Jewish woman’s journey from Poland to California, with stops in Lithuania, Russia, Japan, China, and Canada.

A retired businessman, Mark is on the Executive Board of JRI-Poland and on the Advisory Board of Gesher Galicia. The Past President/Program Vice President of the JGS of Greater Philadelphia, he chaired the program committees for two IAJGS Conferences. He is also the founder of the Bialystok Area Jewish Genealogy Group. Mark was the winner of the IAJGS's 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award. This meeting includes a tip of the month and announcements

Experts are available at 1:30 PM
