Join HAMEC for an evening with Jerry Zaks, who will present his journey into personalized family Holocaust research, with strategies and suggestions for those who wish to dive into their own family histories.

Jerry Zaks is a 2nd Generation Survivor. After retiring in 2016 from a successful career in IT and computer programming, Jerry started a quest of researching and documenting the history of his parents’ experiences and hardships growing up in Poland in the 1930’s. Utilizing the computer and internet skills learned during his career he has spent over 4+ years assembling a detailed presentation which bears witness to his parents’ story.

Continuing his efforts to keep the memory of the Shoah alive, Jerry has now completed, and will conduct a presentation, on HOW to research the history of one’s family in the Holocaust. Titled “Recovering the Past: Researching the Fate of One’s Family in the Shoah” Jerry will show how anyone can find, interpret, and translate amazing details on their family’s Holocaust experiences.
