Naomi Sandweiss will be speaking about Jewish gangsters: who were they, how and why did they get involved in organized crime? The talk will be illustrated with colorful accounts of Jewish involvement.
Naomi Sandweiss thinks of herself as a history sleuth, uncovering stories and sharing what she learns about communities, customs and cultures. Her research and writing have taken her from Taos, New Mexico, to Venice, Italy and many places in between. Her publications include Jewish Albuquerque: 1860-1960, in which she used more than 200 historic images to illustrate the city's fascinating Jewish history. Naomi is President of the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society. Her articles and essays have appeared in numerous publications; she teaches University-level writing and communication courses. She recently wrote an article about a colorful relative, Sammy the Mustache, a member of Detroit's Purple Gang.
