Jewish Migration to New Zealand: Aotearoa as a Safe Haven

Since its founding as a British colony in the 1800s, Jews have been part of the fabric that makes up New Zealand. From the earliest days as whalers and traders, Jews have helped to shape Kiwi society from well known commercial brands to leading political figures. Still, this safe haven has not always been the land of paradise for Jews fleeing persecution in Europe. Restrictive immigration policies and antisemitism has been a part of this story and continues to shape the New Zealand Jewish community.

Kris Clancy of the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand speaks on the impact of Jews on New Zealand and New Zealand's response to Jewish immigration at their most important time of need: the Holocaust.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the talk.
