Discussion/Exhibition The American Jewish Historical Society and the Straus Historical Society recount the dramatic story of the Strauses on the Titanic. Speakers include both descendants of Macy’s owner Isidor and Ida, as well as Steven Biel, Professor of History at Harvard University. A wine, cheese and dessert reception will follow the program, as well as a display of rare objects from the Straus Titanic collection.

The newly republished 100th Anniversary Edition of the Autobiography of Isidor Straus, with inscription by the editor and Straus descendants, is now available for $40. Purchase it with your ticket, and receive it at the event on April 1st.

The mission of the Straus Historical Society is the fostering of educational activities with respect to Jewish settlement in the United States, and in particular, the accomplishments of the Straus family. Toward achieving that mission, the Society conducts research programs, exchanges information with other organizations, provides presentations and seminars, and publishes books and newsletters. The Society is a nonprofit organization and welcomes tax-deductible contributions to continue this valuable work.
I would like to contribute.
