Book: Ilana

Title: Beyond Bias – creating cultures of acceptance

Summary: Along with the lasting consequences of the Holocaust, Jewish history integrates a big picture of spirituality, survival and a celebration of diversity.

I am the Professional and Community Education Coordinator at Sydney Jewish Museum.

I would like to talk to people about:

  • my identity as a religious minority from a culture that I subscribe to only partially
  • my work in the area of moving beyond personal biases to cultures of acceptance
  • my work with Holocaust survivors and learning from history’s lessons and warnings
  • transference of trauma to second and third generations
  • celebrating cultural and racial differences and learning to embrace diversity instead of marginalising those who are different to ourselves.

• Monday 27 March 2017
• Tuesday 4 April 2017
