The Interior of Our Memories: A History of Melbourne Holocaust Museum
Steven Cooke and Donna-Lee Frieze
About this book
The Interior of Our Memories analyses the development of the Melbourne Holocaust Museum within global Holocaust memorial activity, both during the war and in the following decades when many survivors made new lives for themselves in Melbourne. The story begins during the Holocaust when survivors began gathering documents. The book provides a history of the museum’s early days and examines its transformation from a collection of photos, documents and material objects into the modern, educationally focused organisation it is today.
Written by academics Steven Cooke and Donna-Lee Frieze, this work also explores issues of memory, identity and testimony.
