The Strength of Hope: A Holocaust Survivor's Guide to Love and Life

In Conversation: Abram Goldberg and Fiona Harris

In August 2021, Abram and Fiona first set out to write Abram’s amazing story.

Now 97 years old, Abram survived the Holocaust and has remained dedicated to holocaust memory and education since arriving in Australia over seventy years ago. In this very special event, Abram and Fiona will discuss the process of creating this book together; how their very different backgrounds and life experiences shaped the writing of it, and how a professional writing job became personal for both of their families.

Hosted by Jayne Josem, CEO Melbourne Holocaust Museum.
