- Aug 10, 2008I can't tell you all how deeply this video affected me. It was as if some enormous degree of guilt, sorrow, and disappointment had all combined to help us figure out where we go from here. My ancestors fled the area so as not to have to fight for the Austrians and to find some degree of independence and self determination in America. But the motivation to leave one's home must have been very severe indeed. And then the Nazis!
We can only hope that there are great lessons to learn here. From Pope John Paul II, from our Polish grandparents (whether Jews and Catholics) and from the young Tarnobrzheg students who made the film. I do wish I could meet them some day and show them around Monterey County, California.

My website now has a video done by high school students of the from Tarnobrzeg, Poland on the Jews of Tarnobrzeg. Subtitles, with interviews of Tedeusz Zych and the keeper of the Jewish cemetery. Many sites of the town, beautifully done. This video will be shown in Chicago at the Jewish Genealogy conference.
More News to come, exciting news in a few weeks. Gayle Schlissel Riley
