150 people heard former rock star Angry Anderson introduce Father Chris Riley whose Youth off the Streets organisation is deeply involved in stabilising the lives of young people who have found themselves the victims of bullying or racism…in some cases leading to attempted suicide or to the actual taking of their own lives.

The exhibition explains the Holocaust using panels and  with display cases containing actual artifacts from the dark lears of the 1930s and 40s.

Schoolchildren from 40 of Sydney’s most disadvantaged areas have been invited to attend the exhibition.

The Australian Business Community Network have partnered the B’nai B’rith in this new initiative.

Courage to Care’s James Altman and Nathan Cassar who runs an anti-bullying program also addressed the opening…
