Speaking Appearances

"Allan Chernoff's storytelling ability and style, the way that he combined his mother's personal story and a wider perspective on Polish society before, during and after the Holocaust made his online presentation deep, powerful, and historically significant on many levels."


-Claire Solomon Nisen and Lena King, DOROT, New York, NY 


"Allan Chernoff's fascinating online presentation is a vitally important look back at a time, place, and a people we are honored to remember. My patrons and I greatly appreciated his terrific lecture."


-Janet Schneider, Peninsula Public Library, Lawrence, NY



"Allan Chernoff’s presentation, The Tailors of Tomaszow, was one of the highlights of Holocaust Education Week 2015. With a sold out presentation to 600, we couldn’t have been more pleased with the attendance. The presentation was enlightening, educational and extremely enjoyable. The comments I received included, “amazing,” “wonderful,” “so glad I came,” and more. Allan is a captivating presenter who captured the attention of all age groups."

--Marilyn Sinclair, Chair, Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre, Toronto

"Allan Chernoff spoke to a standing room only crowd at the Newton Free Library...this was a stellar event in that Mr. Chernoff wove his family’s very personal story into the fabric and history of the experiences of Jews in Poland on the eve of the Holocaust. Our patrons were thoroughly engaged throughout and participated in a lively Q and A at the end of the talk. I highly recommend Mr. Chernoff for speaking engagements."

-Ellen Meyers, Newton Free Library, Newton, Massachusetts

"This was an unforgettable evening and an extraordinary book dedicated to the memory of the Polish Jews whose history must never be forgotten but instead constantly revealed and cherished."

-Cheryl Cepler, Beit Rayim Synagogue

"Mr. Chernoff captivated the audience with his presentation on Polish Jewry around the second World War. The event attracted a diverse crowd, and his powerful photographs and moving stories led to many engaging conversations well after the talk was over. It was truly an unforgettable evening for all of us there."

-Alana Berman-Gnivecki , Kolbo, Brookline, Massachusetts
