We are back with Season 3 and have a 𝗕𝗜𝗚 𝗦𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 planned in 2022 with exciting announcements, fascinating guests and we really want to feature more voices of older adults, so to kick things off we're talking about preserving some very important human stories.
Some of the most rewarding and exciting moments of working in aged care are hearing about the lives and experiences of older adults, and this episode is all about that feeling. We've got one unbelievable life story, and a look at how technology will allow us to keep asking elders questions about their lives, long after they've passed away.
Joe de Haan is a 99-year-old Holocaust survivor was in hiding from Nazi's in Holland, relocated across the world at 68 and now shares his inspiring story with students at the Melbourne Holocaust Centre. Joe is an active, upbeat, and energetic guy - so energetic this episode needs a language warning!
Our second guest is an expert in collecting and preserving stories of older adults. Shannon Biederman is a curator at the Sydney Jewish Museum and speaks to us about Dimensions in Testimony, a project the museum is running with the Shoah Foundation to create interactive holograms of several holocaust survivors.
The episode’s release also coincides with International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and we’re glad we can share these two perspectives at this time.
