DUNERA BOYS Book

 

 

In July 1940, around 2000 refugees, most of whom were Jewish and from Germany or Austria, were sent from Britain to Australia on the HMT Dunera. The story of the ‘Dunera boys’ is an intrinsic part of the history of Australia in WW2 and in its aftermath. The injustice these men suffered in internment camps at Hay, Tatura and Orange is well known.

 

Less familiar is the tale of what happened to them afterwards. This book tells that story primarily through images. The images, beautiful and powerful, reveal tales of struggle, sadness, transcendence, and creativity, and describe the lives of these men and of the society in which they lived, first as prisoners and then as free men. A contribution to the history of Australia, to the history of migrants and migration, and to the history of human rights, this book helps to tell a story the full dimensions and complexity of which have never been described.

 

‘The Dunera story is one of the great sagas of our history.This brilliant book brings it and the Dunera boys back to life.’

Phillip Adams
