Join us on Thursday 22 February for an immersive experience into the book A Brilliant Life with acclaimed author and St Kilda Shule board member Rachelle Unreich. Rachelle interviewed her mother Mira, a Holocaust survivor born in Czechoslovakia, six months before her death. Although she knew that Mira had been in four concentration camps, including Auschwitz, what she didn’t know was how her mother had survived as a teenager and managed to say afterwards, “In the Holocaust, I learned about the goodness of people.” Says Rachelle: “To me this is a book about my mother’s faith. Apart from her spiritual faith, she had faith in humanitv, in the promise of a better tomorrow – and in herself.”
The night will be filled with conversation, live music from the St Kilda Shule Choir and light refreshments.
