🛄 Exodus from Vienna Following the 1938 annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany, many members of Vienna’s vibrant Jewish community sought safe havens overseas to escape growing persecution. Amongst them were Michael and Regine Weiss and their family. Their story, as told through records held by the National Archives of Australia and other information provided by their descendants, reveals much about Australia’s attitudes towards Jewish refugees during these dark days. Presented by Patrick Ferry, Assistant State Manager of the Victoria office of the National Archives of Australia. Patrick is an archivist with over 20 years of experience in the field. He is also the author of various local history books and the winner of a Victorian Community History Award in 2020. Bookings are essential with a gold coin for entry.
