Call to Meeting, 15 May 2023, 7 pm Mountain time

Janette Silverman will speak on “In the Aftermath”. After World War II, refugees all over Europe lived in Displaced Persons Camps, sometimes for years. Some who wanted to leave Europe were permitted to relocate fairly quickly, for many, the journey away from continental Europe was arduous. We will discuss how to find information about refugees arriving in the United States and track themĀ into records to find out what happened to them during the war. Some of the documentation will reveal their parents’ names & birthplaces. As an example of what can be found, we’ll look at one specific family’s journey. Although the family we will look at ultimately arrived in the U.S., their journey could have taken them anywhere.
