Honouring Phillip Maisel OAM

Join us in honouring the launch of Phillip Maisel OAM memoir The Keeper of Miracles and his retirement from the Melbourne Holocaust Museum as Director of the Testimonies Project.  

For more than 30 years, Phillip Maisel has worked selflessly to record the harrowing stories of Holocaust survivors.

Volunteering at the Melbourne Holocaust Museum for more than 30 years, Phillip has listened tirelessly to their memories, preserved their voices and proven, time and time again, just how healing storytelling can be. Each testimony of survival is a miracle in itself – earning Phillip the nickname ‘the Keeper of Miracles’.

But, for Phillip, confronting and overcoming trauma is also personal. A Holocaust survivor himself, he, too, has unthinkable stories of triumph and tragedy, cruelty and hope. 

This special event will bring together global thought leaders and members of our Melbourne community to honour the remarkable work of Phillip Maisel OAM.
