Estelle Rozinski - The Missing Mezuzot Project

August 2020, via Zoom.

Estelle Rozinski - Australian Society of Polish Jews and their descendants (ASPJ) Co-Vice-President  - was born in Melbourne and is the daughter of Holocaust survivors. Today Estelle works as an artist, curator and educator.
The ‘Missing Mezzuzot Project’ is the first of a series of living history projects exploring Jewish life in pre-war Poland.
The ‘Missing Mezzuzot Project is now a permanent exhibit in the museum of Zdunska Wola, the town of her great grandparents. It records the history and stories of this town prior to 1939 when the town had a population of about 12,000 people, a third of whom were Jewish. The project was created to provide a parallel history to the Holocaust so that the next generations might better understand how people lived, worked and prayed. The project also helps to preserve the names of those who disappeared without a trace.
