Review of the Year (2000) in Foreign Countries: Australia

By Colin L. Rubenstein

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2000

Tax reform and the transition from monarchy to a republic were at the top of Australia's domestic agenda. Australian-Israeli relations remained warm. The government launched an aggressive educational campaign to battle the damage done by public debate over racism, ongoing since 1996. War crimes remained an emotional issue, as the Australian Jewish community had the highest proportion of Holocaust survivors in any Jewish community outside Israel. The Australian Jewish community grew thanks to immigration.
