«How will our children know who they are, if they don’t know where they came from?» —John Steinbeck
YIVO invites you to its third annual study tour to Lithuania and Poland.
Examine the life that was lived and lost as you reconnect with your own heritage. Discover the remarkable treasures of old Warsaw, Krakow, Vilnius, and the magical Białowieża Forest. Noted historian Dr. Samuel Kassow, along with your tour guide, will illustrate the fascinating ways Jewish culture helped shape these societies. You will also visit places where the greatest tragedy in our history occurred. Additionally, you will meet the dynamic young Jews re-building communities on ancestral grounds and take in the sights and sounds of the hugely popular Jewish Culture Festival, the largest Jewish festival in Europe.
The tour will be chaired by Irene Pletka, Vice-Chair of the YIVO Board of Directors.
