Exhibition: The Kingston Arts Centre will host an exhibition exploring the trauma of the Holocaust.

Exhibition explores Holocaust trauma KINGSTON Arts Centre is set to host an exhibition exploring the trauma experienced by Jewish Australians in the wake of the second World War. The exhibition is presented by artist Robyn Fuerst, the daughter of a man who was among those who took the traumatic journey to Australia on the HMT Dunera. Three weeks after her father had died, Ms Fuerst received an envelope which contained documents hidden by her father during

that voyage. Ms Fuerst’s journey of discovery will be presented at the Arts Centre from 9 May until 8 June. The exhibition will be formed from archival photographs, text, music, found objects and sculpture. Ms Fuerst currently works as a visual arts teacher at Mentone Grammar School. She completed her thesis, titled “Manifestations of Memories, Secrets and Trauma of Holocaust

Ms Fuerst will hold a talk on 15 May from 6pm - 7pm. More information: kingstonarts.com.au

FRANKSTON Council and Mornington Peninsula Shire have requested a meeting with public transport minister Melissa Horne and transport infrastructure minister Jacinta Allan to discuss their joint support for the extension of the Frankston line to Hastings. The extension of the rail line to Baxter is currently being discussed, with the federal government committing $228 million to the project and the state government in the process of conducting a business case. Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said that both councils had met and support “stage two” of the project extending the rail line through to Hastings. “If the project is to be delivered as a staged rollout, both councils support Frankston-Langwarrin as stage one and Langwarrin-Hastings as stage two,” he said. “Stage one of this vital public transport project would ease car parking congestion at Frankston Station and will directly benefit Frankston City’s health and education precinct which includes Frankston Hospital, Frankston Private Hospital and Monash University peninsula campus,” he said. “Given recent major investments within the precinct, including the Victorian government’s $562 million upgrade to Frankston Hospital, it is important to provide the transport in-

frastructure needed to cater for the expected visitor growth. “Both councils acknowledge the complex consideration for the future metropolitan train network, however, both are opposed to any stabling and maintenance facilities being located in valuable green wedge land or altering the urban growth boundary and will work together with the Victorian government on possible solutions.” Frankston and Mornington municipalities have a combined population of 305,000, with Frankston classed as a metropolitan activity centre and Hastings a major activity centre. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor David Gill said that with an estimated 82 per cent of the peninsula having no access to bus services and limited access to such services as health and higher education “the region is in desperate need of greater investment into bus services”. “Mornington Peninsula Shire has the second lowest provision of public transport out of the 31 councils in the Melbourne Metro Area. The aged, youth and mobility affected deserve at least a basic level of service no matter where they live,” he said. “The existing 788 bus service carries over half a million passengers annually, with current frequencies from 45 to 100 minutes failing to meet growing demand. “We need the Victorian and Federal governments to get moving on these public transport projects that will deliver better outcomes for our joint communities.”
