In the aftermath of World War ll, Jewish survivors of the Holocaust recorded their terrible experiences under the Nazi regime. This presentation focuses on the retrieval of the early and contemporaneous voices of those attempting to find a new life. The discussion will concern a number of early testimonies recorded in Melbourne by a YIVO committee shortly after the arrival of a number of refugees between 1945 and 1948, and the myriad of problems that had to be faced. The eyewitness accounts serve as important historical documents, as well as memorials to the six million murdered by the Germans.
Copies will be available for purchase at the meeting.
