JTalk Zoom Series - Dave Carson

1:00PM - 2:00PM  

Title: One family's diaspora: how the Mayers of Mainz survived Nazi oppression.

There are so many sad stories about the fate of Jewish people in WWII. Here is a happier one. Dave Carson's presentation will recout the journey of three generations of the Mayer family of Mainz to England, Holland, Switzerland, USA and Argentina following their escape from Germany. Some under their own steam, some on Kindertransport, others hiding like Anne Frank in Holland. All lived to bring up their families in new countries post war.

Dave Carson lives in Dundas. He is collecting family history stories to keep them alive for current and future generations.
