It is now 79 years after Krystallnacht when William Cooper was one of the very few to protest at the German consulate in Melbourne against the treatment of Jews in Germany .

 The chairman of The Council of Christians and Jews, Dr Philip Bliss was recognised for the support the Council had given with help with fundraising to get Uncle Boydie to Beersheba and Berlin.
Abe Shwarz accompanied Uncle Boydie and was instrumental in organising the event.
Dr Philip Bliss said: “It was a very emotional evening.”
