Atlanta: There Once Was a Town, Nov. 11

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia's annual movie meeting is set for 2pm, Sunday, November 11, at the Cuba Genealogy Center at the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, in Atlanta.

The 90-minute film is "There Once Was a Town," focuses on Dr. Yaffa Eliach's return to her hometown of Eishyshok, Poland, where 3,500 Jews were murdered in 1941. Eliach takes a busload of survivors back to their town.

If you have access to Eliach's remarkably detailed book of the same title, do read it to understand the town, the region, the history of the peoples, religions, cultures and daily life.
