Dr. Harry Ostrer
Legacy: A Genetic History of the
Who are the Jews? A race? A people? Both Jews
and gentiles have tried to pinpoint a collective
Jewish identity through physical anthropology
If you missed the sold-out screening at the Traverse
City Film Festival this past summer, here is your
opportunity to experience a lesser-known piece of
history. Based on actual events, this passionate
WWII drama tells the story of a close-knit Gypsy family as they journey
through occupied France trying to avoid the violent Vichy patrols.
Told through humor, emotional dialogue and filmed in the gorgeous
French countryside,"Korkoro" shows the Romany people's joy and
struggle to remain free.
Medical geneticist Harry Ostrer explores the history
of these efforts. Bringing together threads from
Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and India, this unique work
situates Jews in the grand scheme of genetic analysis.
Dr. Harry Ostrer is a professor of Pathology and Genetics at Albert
Einstein Colege of Medicine and director of Genetic and Genomic
Testing at Montefiore Medical Center. He previously served as director
of Human Genetics at New York University School of Medicine.
