Jewish Holocaust Centre

Contact Jewish Holocaust Centre


The Jewish Holocaust Centre (JHC) offers the unique experience of hearing eyewitness accounts from Holocaust survivors who volunteer as guides in the Museum. Learn about events of the Holocaust from those who were there. Established in 1984 by a dedicated group of visionary Holocaust survivors, the JHC 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. Human Rights' issues are examined through the events of the Holocaust, emphasising its relevance to today's world. In 2013 the Centre attracted over 30,000 visitors, 70 per cent of whom were school students who attended the Centre's education program which aims to combat racism, injustice and hatred, while fostering the values of freedom and critical thinking. A visit to the Jewish Holocaust Centre is a deeply touching and paradoxically uplifting experience, as you will witness the strength of human resilience in the face of unimaginable horror. The JHC is easily accessible by train, taking the Sandringham Line from the city. If coming by tram, take the Number 67 tram from the city. Elsternwick station is only a two minute walk to the Centre.
