San Diego: Researching Vilna

The San Diego (California) Jewish Genealogical Society will meet at 1 p.m., October 14, at the Lawrence family Jewish Community Center.

The speaker is Michael Bart, author of a forthcoming book about Abba Kovner's Partisans of Vilna, who will talk about the 10 years he spent researching his parents' related stories.

Instrumental in their stories was their involvement with the partisans, and he will share the mixing of personal stories in the face of important historical facts and how he dealt with establishing a perspective to create a cohesive book.

The book will be published by St. Martin's Press in spring 2008.
