Jewish Holocaust Centre (Elsternwick)




The Jewish Holocaust Centre serves as a permanent reminder of what happens in a society which refuses to accept other cultures and beliefs.

Established in 1984 by a dedicated band of visionary volunteers, The Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre is an institution dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

Over the past years, the Holocaust Centre has become an Australian landmark, gaining many plaudits and coveted awards. The centre conducts an education program which helps to combat racism, injustice and hatred, while fostering the values of freedom, critical thinking.

The centre conducts lectures and runs seminar programs throughout the year, and has developed educational resources and materials to support an active school visitor program that sees thousands of students visiting to meet and talk to Holocaust Survivor guides and their descendants each year.

Our Research Centre includes a library with a collection of books, manuscripts and journals on the subject of the Holocaust and an extensive archive that preserves original items and documents from the Holocaust, as well as precious material from before and after the war. Our Video Testimony Department collects eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust that are available to be viewed for research purposes.
