This is the story of a Jewish community founded in one of the furthermost corners of the world. Suzanne Rutland charts this community's history from its convict origins through the turmoil of the twentieth century which saw numerous waves of Jewish immigrants reach Australia's shores. Jews fleeing Nazism arrived in the thirties. They were followed by survivors of the Holocaust and then by refugees from Hungarian Communism in the fifties. More recent waves have brought Soviet and South African Jews.Edge of the Diaspora documents the story of this vibrant community that has integrated but maintained its Jewish identity.
