Tenement House Oral History Intern

Dave Favaloro of the Tenement House Museum sent me the note, below, concerning their search ofr an oral history intern to conduct interviews with surviving post-WWII Jewish refugees in the New York area. Fluency in Yiddish is desirable — see the announcement below and reply to him directly if interested.


We are also in the process of looking for an intern
to conduct oral history interviews with surviving post WWII Jewish
refugees currently living in the NY metro area. Fluency in Yiddish would
be a plus. This is part of a research project that will ultimately
inform the Museum’s first exhibit at 103 Orchard Street (our new
building), which will interpret the story of the Epstein Family,
Holocaust survivors resettled as refugees on the Lower East Side by the
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in 1947. They lived at 103 Orchard in
1956/57. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please let me know.
