My presentation, which accompanied a three month exhibit in Las Vegas, took place on Sunday, January 8, 2017, at the Sperling-Kronberg-Mack Holocaust Resource Center (http://www.lvhresourcecenter.com). Our esteemed Rabbi Yocheved Mintz introduced the program by telling us about the history and meaning of Mezuzahs. I showed a video, a PowerPoint about the project, and shared a story about a Palo Alto woman who, along with Helena and Aleks, was able to find the home where her grand-parents had lived. She was able to touch the remnant of their Mezuzot in the doorpost, and now, has the bronze casting of it in her home.
Mezuzahs in the current collection are available for sale. If anyone is interested in finding and preserving Mezuzahs from Poland, please contact Helena and Aleks to discuss the possibilities.
On behalf of Helena and Aleks, I thank you for your interest in finding and preserving Poland’s lost Mezuzahs. It is a great honor for me to share their stories, and to help coordinate this traveling exhibit in the USA. I welcome all inquiries about bringing it to other cities and making presentations to your organizations.
