Presented by Lisa Lainer-FaganLisa Lainer Fagan

Los Angeles native Lisa Lainer-Fagan presents her extraordinary research and the family trip to Lithuania designed to discover the fate of her great-uncles and aunts who disappeared during the Holocaust.  This slide-lecture will feature photographs of the many clues they followed in learning the truth – actual letters, survivor testimony, historical photos, government documents, maps – and the actual sites in Lithuania that they visited.  She also illustrates the pre- and post-Holocaust migrations of relatives that made possible her worldwide network of family members today.
