Event description

Description

Between the end of World War II and about 1980, hundreds of Stonnington residents would have had dance, deportment or debutante lessons with the formidable Alice Meyer von Forell. She and her husband Hans Meyer had a reputation as experts in the field of diplomacy and European languages, but their public face hid a private wartime story of life in internment camps in Australia.

Alicia Cerreto is a professional historian. Her most recent book is We Are All Travellers, a centenary history of Travellers Aid Australia. Alicia is passionate about bringing stories from the past into the present and in working with community groups to share their histories with a wider audience.

This event is part of the National Trust’s Australian Heritage Festival.
