(NEWS) Australian Lawmaker Cites Holocaust Victims And A Survivor

"Australia’s first Jewish lawmaker for the federal Liberal Party paid homage in his maiden speech to family members who perished in the Holocaust and one who survived.

Speaking Monday in the House of Representatives in Canberra, Joshua Frydenberg, 39, and a graduate of Bialik College in Melbourne, said that 'My great-grandparents, and many relatives on both sides, perished in the Holocaust, but one who survived is with us today. My great-aunt Mary Frydenberg spent two years at Auschwitz. She was transferred back to Germany by the Nazis and then sent on a death march, but she escaped with the assistance of a humane German guard.'"
