The Sydney Jewish Museum is dedicated to documenting and teaching the history of the Holocaust. The world-class museum challenges visitors’ perceptions of democracy, morality, social justice and human rights and places the Holocaust in its historical and contemporary context.
The Museum aims to teach racial tolerance; to ensure the evils of the past are not repeated; to serve as a witness to the Holocaust and to stand as a memorial to the six million martyred Jews and the millions of non-Jewish victims. It also tells the history of the Jews in Australia and illustrates the richness of Jewish life by showing its traditions. The Museum’s timeline invites you to explore Jewish history from its Biblical origin in the Ancient Near East to the thriving community here in Australia.
