Holocaust Centre, New Zealand
This evening at the Holocaust Centre in Wellington, NZ.
So many people came to hear the presentation that extra chairs had to be brought into the room.
The issue of restitution of property resonated strongly with the audience. Several people told me that their families had lost property, in various countries across Europe, which they still hoped one day to recover.
This evening I participated in a presentation and discussion at Caulfield Hebrew Congregation about my book and the issue of post Holocaust restitution.
Australia has the highest number of Holocaust survivors per capita in the world – outside of Israel – with some 3,000 survivors living in Melbourne. Naturally there was great interest in this topic.
