Racheline Barda

Racheline grew up in Alexandria, Egypt, but like most of the Jewish community was forced to leave in the wake of the 1956 Suez Crisis. She and her husband came to Australia as refugees. After raising three children, Racheline obtained a BA (Hons) and MPhil in French literature, and a PhD in Jewish Studies. She lectures on the history of Egyptian Jewry and wrote the book Egyptian-Jewish Emigrés in Australia (2011). Racheline has volunteered as a guide at the Sydney Jewish Museum since 1996.
