FREE Archives workshop in Augusta March 25

The Holocaust and Human Rights Center (HHRC) and the Maine Jewish
Film Festival (MJFF) will present a free conference entitled *The Role of
Archive in Restoring and Conserving Identity* on Tuesday, March 25th, from
12:00 - 9:00 PM, at the Michael Klahr Center.


This dynamic conference--open to students, professionals and the general
public--will encourage discussion on the critical role archive plays in both
social and cultural contexts.

Whether family photos, official documents, newsreel or home movies, archive
materials are invaluable to both the individual and a society's identity.
Who gathers these materials and how are they catalogued, preserved and made
accessible to the public? Presenters Karan Sheldon (Northeast Historic
Film), Magnus Gertten and Lennart Strom (Auto Images), Diane Afoumado (US
Holocaust Memorial Museum), and Sharon Rivo (National Center for Jewish
Film at Brandeis) will answer these questions and further the discourse on
the role of archive management.

This conference is made possible through the support of the Bernard Osher
Jewish Philanthropies and will be held at the Michael Klahr Center on the
UMA campus, *advance registration is strongly recommended*. To register,
please call 207-621-3530 or email betsy.spekke@maine.edu. FMI visit the
