In My Pocket Project Expands to South Africa

Dorrith Sim’s autobiographical story and our unique creative art project, suitable for 8 to 12 year old upper primary school children, was successfully launched around Australia in March 2023, and now in South Africa. Free mini pocket books have been funded by the German Embassy in Canberra, the Hon Consul in Perth and the Eric Samson Fund in Cape Town.

The project speaks to the current situation of refugees and displaced children around the world.

This simple yet uplifting true story of rescue, survival and hope provides a springboard to the solemn topic of the Holocaust, usually studied in high school.

We provide detailed guidelines and resources on all aspects of the In My Pocket project, including suggested questions, and a video of the pocket making activity, and art workshop.

We have now held a workshop for educators at the Cape Town Holocaust and Genocide Centre, and we launched our art workshop for seniors at the CJSA in Sea Point.

Please join our project as an educator, participant or funder.
