The Jewish Genealogical Society of South Africa in partnership with the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre invite you to a presentation on

A Search for German Jewish Family Roots:
The Impact of Answers

by Jeff Kelly Lowenstein

Join us for an exploratory evening into the Lowenstein family’s history. Jeff’s father and uncle were part of the Kindertransport, a British government-sponsored programme that provided refuge to about 10,000 Jewish children from Central Europe in the aftermath of the Kristallnacht pogrom. The talk follows his journey to uncover and connect to the family’s history.
