The annual event is jointly held with the Australasian Union of Jewish Students –UOW and organised by Professor Greg Rose from ANCORS.
The 2-hour event will include a memorial ceremony and participatory selected readings from The Light of Days - the untold story of women resistance fighters in Hitler’s ghettos, by Judy Batalion. Published in 2021, this award-winning bestselling book sets out and skilfully presents narratives of extraordinary courage, originally published in Yiddish in 1946, that are insightful, surprising and intense. 

After the presentation, there will be a welcome prayer to the Sabbath and then dinner for those wishing to join at 5:30 PM.

All warmly welcome.
