In Lena Goldstein’s story, we journey from her youth in Lublin Poland, through her life and deathstruggle in the Warsaw Ghetto, to a new life in Australia. Weaving this within the historical context, author Barbara Miller creates a gripping account of how Lena survived the lowest ebb in Jewishhistory. Lena’s story will inspire the next generation to be upstanders, and always to have hope!

Melbourne JHC  – 14 February 2019

75th Anniversary of the Partisan Song

We are planning a series of worldwide events leading  up to the 75th anniversary of the Partisan Song next April.

This 4 minute interview with Phillip Maisel below highlights the importance of the Partisan Song, and the role of our youth in keeping alive the legacy of Hirsh Glik’s poem of hope!

Phillip, 95, was a friend of  Hirsh Glik, and one of the first to hear this poem recited in the Vilna Gheto in 1943

I visited the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Melbourne: www.jhc.org.au

and Mount Scopus Memorial College: www.scopus.vic.edu.au

where I presented my Partisan Poem and Song Project to leading Jewish educationalists and oulines the plans leading up to Yom Hashoah.
