The UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program presents:

FLEEING HITLER & STALIN TO AMERICA: Illuminating history with family stories.

by Peter Gourevitch, PhD.

Professor Peter Gourevitch will share the story of his grandparents and relatives who fled from Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany and Occupied France to reach the U.S. in 1940. Not everyone made it. His talk will draw upon stories he heard as a child, documents he found in various sources, and his work as a social scientist and historian, weaving together a narrative of interpretation about how political engagement created for his grandparents both danger and awareness of the threat to their lives and those around them.
