Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) was held in Mt Gravatt on Sunday with local dignitaries and Jewish community leaders.
Professor Jake Najman, one of Australia’s leading sociologists and the son of Polish parents from Lodz spoke about the pre-Holocaust lives of his parents, the period during the Holocaust, touching on The Tattooist from Auschwitz, and the effects on survivors.
Eitan Neishlos is the Chairman of Courage to Care (an organisation that is teaching Queensland and NSW school children about tolerance using the Holocaust as a metaphor) and a director of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies shared the story of his late grandmother who survived the Holocaust thanks to the kindness of strangers.
