Lemkos In Their Own Words: A Multimedia Presentation. Sat. May 17th, 1 p.m. Palos Park, IL

On Saturday, May 17, Richard Garbera Trojanowski will present a multimedia presentation based on original oral history research conducted through The Lemko Project.  The presentation features subtitled video clips of interviews with ethnic Lemkos who experienced the forcible expulsion from their homeland in southeastern Poland between 1944-1947.  The recordings showcase our participants' experiences in their own words and include subtitles for an English language audience.

WHEN: Sat. May 17, 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church, 8530 W. 131st Street, Palos Park, IL. 
COST: Admission is Free!

Richard's presentation is part of a larger roundtable discussion sponsored by Carpatho-Rusyn Society/Lake Michigan Chapter. There will be four presenters in total: two presenters, including Richard, who will talk about the Lemko region in Poland and two presenters who are speaking about trips to Rusyn villages in Slovakia, how they have realized their dreams of visiting their ancestral homelands, and what remains there today.

Refreshments will be provided and items such as books (including Diana Howansky Reilly's "Scattered,") CDs, embroideries, etc., will be on sale.
