The Treasure Box
When our reader, Kitia Altman was asked to read this story – The Treasure Box by Margaret Wild and Freya Blackwood – she was incredibly honoured.
Kitia’s own background was as a Holocaust Survivor from WWII, who came to Australia as a refugee just after the war ended.
She was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in recognition of her work to raise awareness of the Holocaust to the community. The themes this story tackles – identity, perseverance, resilience, hope and survival – were all a big part of Kitia’s personal story, making the symbolism even more powerful.
