Missing McKeesport
The World Premiere of the Full-Length Documentary

Sun, 20 Aug, 2017 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Missing McKeesport: A remembrance of the thriving Jewish community that shaped a generation and is no more Missing McKeesport tells the story of the Jewish community of McKeesport, the Western Pennsylvania town that in its steel-making heyday thrived with a population of 55,000, four synagogues – as many as seven, some say – and a multitude of Jewish-owned businesses catering to the needs of its citizenry. This feature-length documentary film draws on the resources of the Rauh Jewish History Program & Archives at the Detre Library & Archives, preserving and sharing the story of McKeesport’s past through the personal accounts of the sons and daughters of the immigrants who settled there. The film premiere will be followed by an in-person Q&A with the film’s creator, McKeesport-native Sam Zolten. Tickets to the film are included with regular museum admission, which is good all day. Space is limited, so please register in advance at www.heinzhistorycenter.org/events. If you attended the special preview event at Temple B’nai Israel on Thursday, Aug. 17 or are a History Center Member, please enter the code MEMBERMMK to receive 20% off your tickets.
