PGS Events for the Week of 17 - 22 February 2020

Tuesday, 18-Feb-20 at 1:00 PM--What Country Do I Live in Today? This class discusses the change of owners of the land that these people lived in even though they did not move - In many places such as Poland and Ukraine, the rulers were the Russians, Austro Hungarians, Polish, Germans during the war, and finally the present rulers. This class will discuss these changes of ownership from Yisker Books of a town in Ukraine and one in Poland, though it would probably also deal with other eastern European countries. van Heerden.
