Centropa was founded in Vienna and Budapest in 2000 with the goal of preserving and disseminating Jewish memory before the Holocaust in Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Baltics, and the former Soviet Union. Dr. Lauren Granite, Centropa’s Director of Education in North America, will discuss how the organization interviewed over 1,200 elderly Jewish people and digitized over 25,000 privately-held family photographs and personal documents to create thematic websites, multimedia films, traveling exhibitions, educational programs, and illustrated books.
