    Tremendous presentation in general, but outstanding for what some consider depressing. A beautiful weaving of sources with her own journey. I was pleased that she played video of an eyewitness – I might not have gone back to listen for myself.

    Superb talk, I have been working on finding family for a while and this exceeded my expectations.

    Simply heartbreaking and fantastic all at once. Very well put together and I can not wait to watch again (this next time, I’m taking more notes…I got lost in just listening this time and apparently stopped my note-taking at some point)! Thank you so much.

    Beautifully presented, even though the subject is so sad. We need more webinars on tracing Jewish genealogy; I know I am not the only one having a challenging time.

    Lots of great resources to expand my research. Interesting presentation using Ms. Kowitt’s family and their hometown at various times and contexts.

    very interesting. Although I have no Jewish background, I have been reading a lot of historical novels – and some true stories- of the horrors of the Holocaust. This presentation added another facet to my learning curve
