Keren Malki, the Malki Foundation, a non-political, non-sectarian, not-for-profit organization, honors the tragically short life of a girl dedicated to bringing happiness and support into the lives of special-needs children

This site, and the work of Keren Malki (the Malki Foundation), are dedicated to the memory of

Malka Chana Roth Z"L 1985-2001

A tragedy widely felt in Melbourne

Originally published in The Age newspaper, Melbourne, Australia on 12th August 2001

Saturday 11 August 2001

Dear Arnold,

Your pain was evident from your note and the picture published on The Age website. I wish to express my deep shock at the tragic loss of life in the heart of Jerusalem overnight and in particular, the futility of innocent people being the victims of a suicide bomber.

This tragedy will be even more widely felt in Melbourne because of your family's loss of Malki.

I understand your daughter was aged 15. I did not know her, but as a father of a fifteen-year old son, I have some inkling of the love you had for your child. I offer my heartfelt sympathy for you, your family, and your relatives here in Melbourne.

As a student leader in the 1970's, you were one of the people responsible for getting me involved in politics. I always remember your mentoring and friendship and will do anything I can to see your beloved daughter's memory is not forgotten.

Federal Member for Melbourne Ports
