*DIGITAL* From Little Jerusalem to the Lost Mural: Preserving Jewish and Immigrant Heritage
March 2, 2022
Norwich Public Library
In 1885, a group of Lithuanian immigrants settled in Burlington’s Old North End, where they transplanted their religious traditions and culture. Archivists Aaron Goldberg and Jeff Potash describe the “Lost Mural,” a rare survivor of the lost genre of European painted synagogues, and tell the story of conserving the mural in Burlington.
This event is hosted by the Norwich Public Library and the Norwich Historical Society.
