Belarus, formerly a part of the Soviet Union known as White Russia, is seldom visited by Americans. Join Rhona Koretzky for her own story of family history. In 2010, she and her husband traveled to Belarus to visit the birthplaces of her grandparents and previous generations. Rhona will share her journey to the towns of Kartuz Bereza, Indura and Grodno, ending in the capital city of Minsk (notorious as the home of Lee Harvey Oswald). We will explore some information about this unique destination, as well as some tips for starting your own virtual or actual voyage into your family’s past. This program is inspired by our SaratogaREADS! book selection. Please register online.
