Book Launch: Dunera Lives
A Visual History
by Ken Inglis, Seumas Spark and Jay Winter with Carol Bunyan
In July 1940, around 2000 refugees, most of whom were Jewish and from Germany or Austria, were sent from Britain to Australia on HMT Dunera. The injustice these men suffered in internment camps at Hay, Tatura and Orange is well known. Less familiar is the tale of what happened to them afterwards.
Join authors Seumas Spark, Jay Winter and Carol Bunyan with Dunera boy Bern Brent and Professor Frank Bongiorno (ANU), for the launch of this new work revealing the moving and complex stories of the Dunera refugees.
