Dunera Lives - Profiles


Dunera Lives

A Visual History

By Ken Inglis, Seumas Spark and Jay Winter with Carol Bunyan

‘When scholars of such rigorous and refined erudition engage with a topic of such critical importance it is a cause for celebration, as are the lives themselves, painstakingly recorded so movingly herein. And all of it comes into the world not a moment too soon.’ Elliot Perlman

'Dunera Lives provides a rich visual record of this remarkable group of men as they grappled physically, emotionally and imaginatively with living as newcomers in a strange land, at a time when their world was tearing itself apart. This is social and cultural history at its best - one connecting a place that seemed to these unwilling immigrants as if it might be the very end of the earth with the overwhelming tragedy of twentieth-century European history.' Professor Frank Bongiorno, The Australian National University

‘It's the generous spirit of humanity that makes this book so wonderful. It infuses its content, inspired the idea of it and informs the scholarship that impressively and humbly served that idea, making it a reality.’ Professor Raimond Gaita

‘The Dunera story is one of the great sagas of our history.  This brilliant book brings it - and the Dunera boys - back to life.’ Phillip Adams
