Holocaust Survivor Speakers

OUR VOLUNTEER Holocaust survivor speakers are central to the Courage to Care program.

Speakers tell their personal stories of their experience of persecution, their survival and the courage to those who helped them because they feel a duty to inform young people about the lessons of the Holocaust.

These volunteer speakers  inspire listeners with the stories of how they were saved by ordinary people who became heroes by standing up to injustice. These survivors are now Australian citizens who have made enormous contributions to their adopted country and the Australian way of life.
