Singing Swallows is a compilation of four Holocaust stories, created for young audiences between the ages of nine and 18 years old. Each story focuses on four different journeys of Jewish children/young adults during the Holocaust. The stories, compiled from interviews with Holocaust survivors are voice recorded by young Jewish children in primary school.

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the land I live, work and create upon. I am grateful for the connections I have had with country and its peoples. I feel fortunate to be able to create new work, collaborate and engage with others on this land. I acknowledge elders past, present and emerging and value the knowledge carried with them.
