Aboriginal elder William Cooper extraordinary anti-Nazi protest after Kristallnacht (Hebrew)

Find out the untold story of William Cooper, an inspirational Australian Aboriginal political activist and community leader.
Cooper was not only concerned with the plight of his own people but was moved by the extreme discrimination faced by other oppressed populations.
On 6 December 1938 less than a month after Kristallnacht when Jewish people were targeted in widespread rioting and looting across Germany, Cooper led a march to the German consulate in Melbourne to condemn the, ‘cruel persecution of the Jewish people by the Nazi government in Germany’.
German officials refused to take the written condemnation,and many say, including former Israeli Ambassador to Australia, Yuval Rotem that brave William cooper deserves great praise for his protest.

Cooper was honoured in Israel by the creation of an academic chair in his honour to support resistance and research of World Holocaust Studies.
