In this Lunchtime Lecture, Dr Ari Lander will honour the late Holocaust survivor Oskar David Benedikt’s and the legacy he left at the Sydney Jewish Museum. Ari will explore David’s experience of Salaspils concentration camp and try to examine some of the ways in which survivor recollections deepen our understanding of the Holocaust.

David arrived in Riga, Latvia, in January 1942 with 1,000 other Jewish victims. Upon arrival, his entire family was murdered. David shared his memories at the Museum for almost a quarter of a century. He also published his memoir, To Live is to Tell, in 2010.

“It took me 15 years before I could talk about it, and even now I don’t go into the gruesome details… Every time I speak of it, there are emotions.”

– David Benedikt
