The Experience of the Jewish Family during Shoah: Diaries of Child Survivor Yehuda Bacon
Organised by Mandelbaum House, the Sydney Jewish Museum and the University of Sydney’s Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies.
Hitler’s intention and regime was the destruction of Jewish people. Intrinsic to their murderous policy, the Nazi’s separated Jews from their families and friends. In this lecture Dr Kangisser Cohen looks at the experiences during this extreme suffering and focuses on strategies – planned and unplanned – that each member of the family adopted in order to survive.
