Born in Hungary, the elder son of Holocaust survivors, Andrew Casey’s family came to Australia as refugees in the 1950s.
A journalist and long-time activist in the union movement, Andrew’s dedication to social justice, inspired by his Jewish values, was widely admired. Throughout his life he worked to connect Israelis and Palestinians through trade unions, support refugees and people seeking asylum, protest for land rights for First Nations peoples in Australia and build bridges between Jews, Muslims and Christians in Australia.
Andrew’s support for NIF through a significant legacy gift, which in part supports the advancement of democratic values in Israel, particularly through partnerships with Israel’s Arab citizens, ensures the values he embodied throughout his life continues to be felt today.
