Volume 40 No 1 – April 2018

In this edition, Mark Weitzman, from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and Dr Brendan Nelson, Director of the Australian War Memorial, draw lessons from the Holocaust in discussing current events. We also bring you the stories of survivors Josef Hellen and Moshe Fiszman, and Bernadette Gore and Paul Valent, who feature in the new anthology of Melbourne child survivors, A Point in Time. Maarten Joustra recounts the moving story of how he was saved through the help and courage of ‘ordinary people’ in Holland, and Ellina Zipman discusses the Melbourne Holocaust survivor opsimaths – people who learn later in life – who embarked on study after being denied an education because of the Holocaust.
