The Jewish Holocaust Centre was the fulfilment of a vision by Melbourne Holocaust survivors to create a memorial to the millions of Jews who were murdered between 1933 and 1945. The Centre was established under the patronage of Yad Vashem, Jerusalem and, from its humble beginnings in 1984, has grown to become an active and internationally-recognised institution dedicated to combating racism, hatred and prejudice by fostering tolerance and understanding.

  • A must visit! Very confronting and thought-provoking exhibition where you actually learn something that matters. It's free and they do personal tours around the exhibition when you arrive. You may leave a bit depressed but very good for a rainy day!
  • I spent 2.5 hrs here as I took the time to read everything. Try and avoid going on a weekday, unless you don't mind the noise from school children visiting. I enjoyed the museum, however I felt disappointed as the volunteers were only interested in talking to the school children. I felt invisible and like a second class citizen, was not even greeted by them- once the kids left, no one was around for me to ask questions. Museum is 2 min walk away from train station. Visited late Oct 2018.
