Join us at the Melbourne Holocaust Museum for the rare opportunity to hear first-hand from Holocaust survivor Andy Factor OAM

Andy was born in Plauen, Germany in 1924. He was nine year old when the Nazis came to power in Germany.

After the antisemitic laws were introduced in Germany, Andy experienced isolation and humiliation.

Andy and his father were arrested the day after Kristallnacht. He was released after a week, but his father was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp for six weeks.

Thanks to Andy’s relatives in America, his family has received visas to France where they lived for several months during which time the war broke out.

Andy and his family arrived in Australia in 1940.

Join us on the 7th of July to meet Andy and learn about his experiences.
