AIM

The HASA website aims to preserve the history of some Slovenians in Australia. It showcases the most important historical, social, cultural and multicultural events in the history of Slovenians in Australia, as they established the Slovenian associations and gathered at Slovenian church services in most capital cities of Australia.

Take a virtual walk through decades of Slovenian settlement, joining the Slovenian club, socialize and dance, build and perform for the Slovenian community, other ethnic groups and for the Australians.  You will find history, stories, activities - photos, documents and footage on this website

History

The late Milena Brgoč, past president (2001-2005) of Slovenian Association Melbourne, founded the archive of the Slovenian Association Melbourne. Milena Brgoč so understood the importance of the archive, that she pressed for it to become an independent entity.  In September 1998, the association’s archive became the Historical Archives of Slovenians in Australia or Historični Arhiv Slovencev v Avstraliji in short HASA (later HASA – Victoria to distinguish it from HASA NSW, which was established and registered in 2003).

An agreement with State Library of Victoria was signed in 1998 for HASA’s collection of documents, books, photos and important items to be assigned to the Victoria State Library in the future.
