Video from 3/24/10 Program



Thanks to videographer Tim Bolger, you can now enjoy excerpts from our 3/24/10 Chicago WITASWAN program at the Harold Washington Library Center, sponsored by the Chicago YIVO Society (with support from AAUW Chicago, IWA, IWPA & the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois), & held in conjunction with celebrations of the 3rd annual International SWAN Day.

Meet our special guests Eileen Douglas & Ron Steinman.  Eileen introduces their film My Grandfather’s House in Part One.  Then Eileen & Ron do a Q&A together (after the screening) in Part Two.

Leslie Newcorn provides the beautiful voice singing “Birds are Drowsing” (in Yiddish) at the beginning and “I Believe” (in Hebrew) at the end.  Chicago YIVO Board Member Jan Lisa Huttner (aka Tzivi) is the MC in the red sweater.
