Description of lecture: When the British first arrived on the shores of Australia, the land was declared as ‘Terra Nullius’, nobody’s land. However, the island continent was home to hundreds of different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations and clans who were instantly deemed as ‘subjects’ of the British Crown. This lecture will briefly trace the dispossession of Australia’s indigenous people, the long campaign for Aboriginal rights, and the case for an apology to the Stolen generation. The lecture will also consider the role of Jewish community leaders in supporting Aboriginal causes.
