HKHTC Webinar – Genocide Awareness Month Series

All are welcome. Please join us via:

Spanning three continents, Eva de Jong Duldig’s improbable story of survival and ultimate settlement in Australia via Singapore illustrates the destructive influence of ethnoreligious intolerance and the capacity to rebuild after unforeseen trauma.

The Duldig family thrived in Vienna prior to World War II. Eva’s mother, Slawa, invented the modern foldable umbrella and her father, Karl, was a sportsman and artist whose work can be seen in museums across the world.

After the Anschluss of Austria by Nazi Germany in 1938, the Duldigs fled Europe. A story that has been turned into an award winning memoir and musical, Eva will share her family’s experience during the Holocaust, their time in Singapore and a wartime internment camp in Tatura, Australia, as well as her journey to becoming an elite tennis player, participating in Wimbledon and the Australian Open.

We look forward to your attendence at this special webinar event hosted by the Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre (HKHTC). 

Supported by: The Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art (FAS)
