Event details

Stefania’s mother said, ‘Choose one thing that is most precious to you, that’s all we can take’. Stefania chose her dancing slippers.

Watch a presentation based on the book ‘Stefania’s Dancing Slippers’ written by Jennifer Beck and illustrated by Lindy Fisher. It reflects the deportation of 733 Polish children and 102 adults and their journey to New Zealand in 1944.

See the beautiful artworks from the book, and then create your own.

Suitable for 7 years to adult.

Pay by cash or internet banking on the day (sorry no eftpos).
