The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston presents Bernard P. Fishman and Dr. George L. Mutter, the creators of Photoarchive 3D, a digitized archive of over 30,000 original stereographic 19th and early 20th century historical images.
On February 28, 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm join us for a virtual tour of the vanished Jewish world prior to the mass migrations of the early 20th century as seen through never-before-shown historic stereo photographs.. These images, taken between 1860 and 1915, are shown in actual 3-D as they were originally meant to be seen. Special glasses will be provided.
The photos show the cities of Western Europe, the shtetls of Eastern Europe and Russia, the borderlands of the Ottoman Empire, and the dusty towns of Palestine. They reveal a diverse Jewish universe with all its complexities and contradictions. You will be there, see what they saw, and walk with them on their migrations through the magic of this little-known but deeply immersive form of photography.
At Temple Emanuel, 385 Ward Street, Newton Centre. The program is free for members, $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served. For more information go to jgsgb.org.
