London 2019 #1

London, June 2019

Here is a selection of my photos from the first couple of days of a six week  trip that will take me to London, Lithuania, Latvia, Israel, Belarus and Poland.

This trip will include meetings in London, commemorations in Lithuania, a seminar at the International School of Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, my presentations in Jerusalem and Ra’anana, the reunion of the Bielski Partisans in Belarus, and a visit to Warsaw, before heading home to Perth, Australia. Hopefully I will see numerous family members and friends along the way.

To give you an idea of how far away Perth is from London,  my first flight was non-stop, and 16 hours 47 minutes long!
