Conversation About West Side Stories with Co-Producer, Ron Bernstein
Thursday, February 25 at 1:00 pm MSTWatch West Side Stories before February 25 with this link: https://vimeo.com/86355202, and then join us for a conversation with the co-producer, Ron Bernstein.
West Side Stories tells the story of the founding, growth and unlikely success of one of this country’s most dynamic Jewish communities, as told by those who lived it. As early as the late 1800s, Jews from around the world found their way to the ‘wild, wild west’ of Denver because of the gold rush, the tuberculosis epidemic and an ingenious scam. The community was unique in that it replicated exactly an eastern European shtetl in nearly every way. Later, the community became famous as the childhood home of Golda Meir, Thomas Bopp, who discovered the Hale-Bopp comet, and Theodore Maiman, the inventor of the laser. Several major US corporations including Mattel, Samsonite and OxiClean also had their roots on Denver’s Jewish west side.
