The Community Stories Project of the Sydney Jewish Museum is proud to launch Josie Lacey OAM’s story, An Inevitable Path: A Memoir, on Sunday 25 November 2018 at the Sydney Jewish Museum. Josie Lacey OAM is Convenor, NSW Branch of Religions for Peace.
Josie’s account gives firsthand insight into what leads a person down ‘an inevitable path’. Josie’s experiences of antisemitism and the rise of Nazism saw her and her parents have to leave their homeland, apply to immigrate to Australia, arriving here in 1939.
At school as a ‘reffo’ Josie encountered ignorance and antisemitism which left an indelible mark. her strong moral stance and her deep desire to combat racism and foster greater understanding between people of different faiths has resulted in her extraordinary life’s work; to educate, demystify and to fulfil responsibilities to family members who never had the chance to reach their potential.
The Hon. Walt Secord, Shadow Minister for Health, Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council and Parliamentary Friends of Israel Deputy Chair, will launch the book.
