In Conversation with a Holocaust Survivor

For our final session participants are invited to hear from someone who survived the Holocaust. In conversation with Morgan, the survivor will share the story of their family, survival and the impact of the Holocaust on their lives. This session will take place at the Sydney Jewish Museum.


Course Update: Due to the current COVID situation we will no longer be able to do a live session with a survivor. In this revised session we will hear pre-recorded testimony from a Holocaust survivor. This video testimony will form the basis of a broader discussion about the importance of testimony to our historical understanding of the Holocaust and the role it plays in community remembrance.


This course is part of a joint initiative between WEA Sydney, the Sydney Jewish Museum and Shalom Theatre to celebrate Rosenbaum’s Rescue in September at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre. Be inspired by the previously unknown heroism of the Danes. In 1943, Danish fishermen risked their own lives to send 7,500 Jews to Sweden. They saved roughly 90% of the Danish Jewish population. In 2001, as Denmark revises their immigration policy, two men are struggling to separate fact from fiction. This gripping play examines the malleability of truth, shared history, and how easily our memories can be altered.
