ANU Visiting Professor, Politics and International Relations, Australian National University

Colin Tatz is a visiting professor in Politics and International Relations at ANU, and a director of the Australian Institute of Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

He was first exposed to prejudice as a young boy in South Africa, watching black servants being abused in his own home, and he experienced it in is his own right as a young Jewish boy.

He left South Africa on the last day of 1960, and when he arrived in Australia, with his young family, Colin says he felt instantly at home.

A quiet hatred of intolerance is a recurring theme in Colin's life's work as a historian.

His monograph Genocide in Australia: By Accident or Design? was be published in 2011 by the Monash Indigenous Centre.
