If you can get there, go to the wonderfully creative Kristallnacht Cantata in Melbourne on 8 Dec where you will hear world-class musicians and singers and hear an imagined duet between Aboriginal William Cooper and Kristallnacht survivor Otto Jontof-Hutter. If you can’t make it, consider donating to this worthy cause. Anything above the production costs will go to the Aboriginal group Mullum Mullum Gathering Place -they need repairs to their building- and also accommodation for the homeless. The Mullum Mullum Yeng Gali Choir will be singing in the first half-and invited Otto’s grandson Ron to play Amazing Grace with them. The link to donate is https://australianculturalfund.org.au/projects/kristallnacht-cantata/
Barbara will have a special promotion for her book White Australia Has A Black History: William Cooper and First Nations Peoples’ Political Activism available at the Kristallnacht Cantata Melbourne, on the night of Dec 8; with $5 for each book sold going to the Kristallnacht Cantata.
Barbara will also have a give-away of chapter one with a cover photo of her soon coming book Shattered Lives Broken Dreams: William Cooper and Australian Aborigines Protest Holocaust.
We hope to see you there!
