ANUJSS and the Nulla Nullas
The Nulla Nullas was a children's Club run at Wallaga Lake Aboriginal Reserve, south coast of NSW, during 1964-1966
There is a "sense of shared experiences between the Jewish community and Aborigines,
epitomised by the pioneering legal work of the late Ron Castan QC and Jewish
involvement in the key High Court land-rights cases of Mabo and Wik."
