New Exhibition: "Tribute: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors" by Jeffrey Kelson
22 March - 10 April 2016
A tribute to the dignity, fortitude and resilience of 20 Melbourne Holocaust survivors.
As Melbourne’s Jewish Holocaust survivor numbers decline, a local artist has painted a series of portraits to commemorate their stories.
To be shown this month at the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick, Tribute is an homage to the stories of 20 survivors, most now aged in their 80s and 90s. This is the first time a series like this has been painted in Australia.
The Jewish Holocaust Centre will screen 'Camp 32', the movie by Cambodian-born Melbournian, Bunhom (Hom) Cchorn, on Sunday, 18 September, at 2.00pm.
Hom Cchorn, just six years old when he was imprisoned by the Khmer Rouge in a concentration camp, returns to his homeland to make a film about the brtual prison where his father and brother were killed and where he was imprisoned at Camp 32, a remote site in Cambodia.
The Jewish Holocaust Centre seeks to appoint an outstanding, committed and experienced educator with exceptional teaching skills.
The appointee will become a member of a well established and successful department dedicated to teaching museum-based educational programs
