To mark 80 years since the deportation of Jews from Hungary, we launch a fascinating Holocaust biography, The Photographers Potaschnikow, which tells the tale of two professional Jewish photographers who were saved by their craft during the Holocaust.

Join the author, Clare McNamara, in conversation with Jacqui Wasilewsky, Community Stories Manager, Nadine Saacks, notable Jewish event photographer, and Donna West Brett, Associate Professor and Chair of Art History at the University of Sydney, as they discuss the enduring relevance of photography and the role it plays in not only documenting, but saving, life.

Tickets are free, but bookings are essential.
