If I Survive by author Barbara Miller tells the story of Holocaust survivor Helena (Lena) Goldstein. Lena has been a volunteer at the Sydney Jewish Museum since its inception 26 years ago. Aged 99, Lena continues to tell her story of survival to groups of students at the Museum.
This is Barbara’s second book on the topic of the Holocaust. Her first, published in 2012, explored the life of William Cooper, an Indigenous Australian after whom an Academic Chair of Resistance to the Holocaust was named in 2010. Barbara is a psychologist and sociologist, and was shortlisted for the Queensland Literary Awards in 2018 for her memoir, Work of State Significance.
