IconPast Events

In this very special public event, Beate Klarsfeld will take you on a journey back more than sixty years, when she and her husband Serge hunted, confronted, and exposed
Nazi war criminals, tracking them down to their hiding places. It is they who uncovered the notorious Klaus Barbie, the former Gestapo officer known as “the Butcher of Lyon”,
in Bolivia. It is they who outed Kurt Lischka as the man responsible for the largest deportation of French Jews. And, with the help of their son Arno, who will be speaking
alongside Beate, it is they who brought the Vichy Police Chief Maurice Papon to justice.

Beate and Arno are guests of The Joint Australia.This is their only public event in Melbourne.
