Connections Newsletter, August 2021

In this issue, we highlight the recent Dunera exhibition in Tatura by the late Paul Mezulianik, who was interned as an ‘enemy alien’ along with 2,000 other ‘Dunera Boys’ in 1940; a number of child survivors have written their impressions of life under COVID lockdown: Dita Gould, Joe De Haan, Sarah Saaroni OAM, Ena Lewis-Krant, Gary Fabian, Paul Valent, Ruth Herschtal, and Renata Schnall on her late mother Danka Schnall; and greetings from Dr Tony Weldon OAM FRACP, Chairman of ‘Courage to Care’.
