About this event

Join us at the Melbourne Holocaust Museum to commemorate Yom HaShoah in partnership with the Museum of Inherited Memories.

We are one of the last generations to hear testimony directly from Holocaust survivors. We have been listening for as long as our survivors have been ready to share, but how do we feel about inheriting the position of witnesses?

This Yom HaShoah, we look into our role as custodians of these survivors’ memories and how we might share them with our families and beyond. Whether you work in the field of Holocaust remembrance or are an active audience member, whether you are Jewish or not, the descendant of survivors or not, we all have a role to play should we choose.

Special guests include Bram Presser (author), Emily Lubitz (musician), Ezra Faigenbaum (student, poet), Lior (musician), and Sarah Grynberg (speaker, teacher, podcast host).
