Virtual Talk: Photographs and Family History Research
October 6, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
To coincide with our exhibition ‘There was a time…’: Jewish Family Photographs Before 1939, join members of The Wiener Holocaust Library staff as they discuss the importance of photographs in family research.
Photo Archivist Torsten Jugl and International Tracing Service Archive Team Manager Elise Bath lead this event, where they discuss the uses of images in family history, as well as their limitations, and offer practical tips on how to care for and fully explore your photographs.
This event is also part of the ‘Excavation-Confrontation-Repair? Family Histories of the Holocaust’ programme.
