    29. How a Jewish family survived Nazi Germany

    29. How a Jewish family survived Nazi Germany

    This is Andy Factor’s survival story. And, Parents, yes, he is related to Max. And being related to Hollywood’s top makeup artist saved Andy’s life – and the lives of his brother, sister, mother and father. Andy – who was originally called Abraham - and his family get out just in time and begin new lives in Australia.
    If you missed last week’s episode, check it out – Andy told us all about his experiences at school in Nazi Germany. And the time when two Jewish boys – Andy his brother – tried to join the Hitler Youth. As you do.
    Read industry reviews of Dad’s new World War II Asia-Pacific novel, The Slightest Chance, at paulletters.com. It’s now out on Kindle for US$6.99, as well as in paperback. So is Dad’s first wartime novel, A Chance Kill, based on Dad’s granny’s escape from Poland during the war.
    Here are some questions based on today’s episode:
    1.      Why was Andy not allowed to complete high school or got to music school in Nazi Germany?
    2.      What type of products does the Max Factor company still make today?
    3.      In which month and year was Crystal Night, when the Nazis smashed up Jewish shops and synagogues?
    4.      Which country did Andy and his family first go to when they left Germany in 1939?
    5.      Why did they leave that country to go to Australia?
    6.      Andy got a job with Myer department store but why did he leave that job?

    28. Why did Hitler and the Nazis hate Jewish people?

    28. Why did Hitler and the Nazis hate Jewish people?

    Our mission here is to help kids increase their awareness of a difficult issue but without causing nightmares. In the intro, we do go as far as to say that the Nazis killed six million Jews – because to ignore or deny that only helps Nazis. After that, we play safe. But, yes, this episode may be more relevant to older kids more than the 5-year-olds (who should definitely check out our first 19 episodes, at least – James was only 6 when we started recording material!).
    And if you want to know why a Jewish boy wanted to join Hitler’s youth group, listen until the very end!

Was he in charge of all allied forces in the north-east Pacific or the south-west Pacific? The Yalu River is the border between North Korea and which country? In Korea, MacArthur’s troops were cornered by North Korean troops to the north and west and by the sea to the south and east.

    24. Why isnt Sydney the capital of Australia?

    Sydney maybe Australia’s most famous city, and it may be its greatest city ( - Melbourne folk wouldn’t say so! - ), but it’s not Australia’s capital city. Instead, a sheep farm became the capital of Australia. We find out why.
    Yawn alert, kids! – you’ll also hear about Dad’s new wartime novel (see paulletters.com for details).
    Questions for after you’ve listened:
    Admiral Zheng might have been the first person from a different continent to visit Australia. Which country was Admiral Zheng from? What year did Captain Cook arrive in Australia? From which UK city did Admiral Arthur Philip and the First Fleet leave for Australia? What year did Arthur Philip and the First Fleet arrive in Australia? The first colony was built in what is now known as ‘The Rocks’ area of Sydney. Who was living around there before the British arrived? At least how many miles from Sydney did the capital city have to be? Parliament House is where Australia’s Parliament meets and works. What used to be there in that area before they built Australia’s capital city? In what year was the country of Australia officially started?
