Following My Parents' Footsteps through the Holocaust on Zoom (Registration Required)
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Eli Avny says of himself: “During my childhood, growing up under the shadow of the holocaust, there was not much mention about my parents' ordeal. We three children did not ask, and our parents did not volunteer. After the war, they lived with their memories for the remainder of their lives, sharing only a little with us.” By the time Eli started to investigate his parents’ history, his mother was already deceased. He traveled to the sites of Nazi camps where his parents had been, and talked to many people in an effort to understand their past, and his childhood. He educated himself about antisemitism, and traveled extensively across Europe, and in Latvia, Lithuania, and Germany. This presentation is Eli Avny’s personal story, as well as a generic story of dark times among the human race.

Blood, Ghosts and Glory: Michigan in the Civil War on Facebook
7:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Learn about Michigan in the Civil War with retired educator Rochelle Balkam.  Civil War stories are a part of Balkam’s heritage, with her ancestors playing a significant role. Her personal journey began with the discovery of Sarah Edmonds/Franklin Thompson’s questionable autobiography, and Civil War artifacts, while doing historical research for a Master’s degree in history. That journey took her to Spotsylvania, where her great-great uncle received a Kearney Cross for bravery, and onward to Gettysburg where she met with a bloody accident and a “ghost encounter.”
