An online meeting with Dr. Richard Haber, author of the book “Still Here. A Memoir”

Richard Haber was born in Poland in 1933 – in the very same year in which Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany. As a child, Mr. Haber miraculously survived the Krakow Ghetto by escaping it together with his parents. Then, their journey and life in hiding began. The Haber family was finally captured and sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, but they managed to escape, and until the end of the war, they stayed in hiding.

When he reached Australia, Mr. Haber, being a young boy who barely spoke English, left all the terror he experienced in Europe behind and began a new life. He settled, started a family, and became an acknowledged cardiologist. Currently, he is 90 and is still working part-time.

The meeting will focus on the memoir by Richard Haber and will include a discussion on his story and the impact of difficult memories in later life, as well as the role of memoirs in historic research.

In Polish. Free admission.
