Paul Seideman

28/03/1928 - 13/11/2021

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of Paul Seideman z”l this weekend. We extend our condolences to all who knew and held Paul dear, as many of us at the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand did.

Paul was a great supporter of Holocaust education and remembrance in Aotearoa New Zealand.

As a young Czech Jew, Paul managed to survive in the Lódz Ghetto, and several concentration and labour camps, including Auschwitz, and a death march, during World War II. He was liberated at Dachau, aged 17. After liberation, Paul emigrated to Australia and then New Zealand. Sadly Paul's father and mother died in the Lódz Ghetto, 1942.

Paul will be remembered fondly by many.

His generosity and legacy lives on through the annual competition he endowed, administered by the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand.

May his memory be a blessing.

Paul's funeral will be held at The Wilson Funeral Home, 375 Adelaide Road, Newtown, Wellington on Tuesday 16 November at 11am.

The service will be live streamed, and the link can be found at the top of this page.
