A Night to Remember: the Ghetto Cabaret

In every wartime ghetto, Jews continued their rich cultural life despite the constant fear, the threat of deportation, hunger and disease. Music, theatre and cabaret were part of everyday life, with hundreds of new songs composed and plays written, a testament to the resilience of the performers and writers. Cabaret was particularly popular as it was a form of resistance – with upbeat songs poking fun at the Nazis and each other.

Guest Speaker, Barbara Kamler, Emeritus Professor, Deakin University will give a lecture on “Stories of Leaving and Relocating Lives”.

The experience of leaving one’s country and settling in a new place is traumatic— involving a complex process of dislocation and relocation, unsettling and resettling. Barbara Kamler was born in New Jersey and came to Australia in 1972. Through personal narrative she will share her thoughts about the tensions of moving between ‘here’ and ‘there’, between leaving your family and acquiring another, between what you imagine and what you experience.
